Did you know?
- Currently there are just over 2.75 million elderly persons (65+ years of age) in our country, of which 1 million are already over the age of 75.
- The popoulation of the whole world, including South Africa, is getting older than before and therefore the number of older persons are set to increase dramatically in the near future.
- Only a small number of older persons will get housing and care in old age homes or other places of care.
- The responsibility of caring for the elderly already rests on the shoulders of the community and in the future even more so.
