What is the history of Methodist Homes?
The organisation was started in 1970 and, over time, has built up a credible track record to become a major role player caring for the aged. The property portfolio is now valued at over R800 million, and this provides the major asset base of the organisation.
Methodist Homes is run on sound business principles to ensure success in an increasingly difficult environment, at all times remembering that most older people are trying to make ends meet out of fixed and often declining incomes.
What is Methodist Homes association with the Methodist Church of SA?
The company has strong links with the church, and subscribes to high moral and ethical standards in the way it conducts its business. Having said that, the company is not in any way financially supported by the church. At least 50% of our board members are members of the Methodists church, and each home has a local committee that has a representative of the Methodist Church.
