Where do we work and what services to we offer?
Huis Meyerton, a registered Home for Senior Citizens of NG Welfare, was established in 1981. It is a well-known beacon and near to the business centre of Meyerton.
The Home comprises a retirement village with 64 Units- bachelor, one – and two-bedroom apartments where 82 senior citizens live independently on their own. Inside the Home, there are 97 frail senior citizens that are cared for and receive medical care.
Lodging fees in the Home amounts to R8 330 pm per person from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021, and includes the following: all meals, laundry care, house-cleaning services, a safe environment as well as a 24-hour medical support service.
Rental enquiries for the village homes can be made to the Home.
Involvement in the community, local ministers, medical doctors and pharmacies enable the rendering of a quality service to the 97 residing senior citizens. Local schools and nursery schools see to it that the residents are constantly entertained and women services of congregations spoil the residents regularly with all kinds of goodies.
A variety of organised activities are regularly arranged for the senior citizens and include, amongst others, regular weekly prayer meetings and sermons on Sundays, book reading, light physical exercises, card playing, choir practice, team building events, dominos and performances of singing groups.
A committee of the Retirement village helps on a regular basis with fund raising projects while one male senior resident assists with smaller maintenance work and with reading the electricity metres. Another senior resident in the Home also accepted the responsibility to do handyman work on the premises on a regular basis. The senior citizens are a very happy family and always refer to Huis Meyerton as “their house “!
Huis Meyerton is a very popular & well maintained retirement village and there is a long waiting list to obtain accommodation here. It takes between 1 and 3 years on an average on the waiting list before senior citizens have their need filled.
