About Us

What is the history of MHA?

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. 
MHA 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 MHA's 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 Methodists of good standing, and each home has a local committee that has a representative of the Methodist Church. All board and local committee members provide their expertise and guidance on a voluntary basis. 

Who can live at an MHA home/village?

MHA is open for occupation by residents of all races, and of all religious denominations. No unfair discriminatory practices are applied and preference is given to previously disadvantaged persons. MHA participates actively in industry associations, such as Age-In-Action (previously SA Council for the Aged), SAAHA (South African Association of Homes for the Aged), as well as various regional forums. This enables MHA to keep up to date with activities and trends in the industry. 

Does MHA hvae a "waiting list"?

Applicants are required to complete an Accommodation Application Form (downloadable from this website) to have their name added to a waiting list at any of our villages.  There is no fee applicable at time of application.
At the time of taking up accommodation at any of our villages or homes, a once-off non-refundable admission fee of R1000 is payable.

How young or how old must I be?

The minimum age of an occupant is 60 years, unless otherwise expressly agreed to by the MHA Board of Directors. Residents are allowed to be employed (but not run a business from MHA premises), and are always encouraged to remain as active as possible. A full medical report is required for all new occupants, and MHA has the right not to admit an applicant if the accommodation is not considered to be suitable for the resident. 

How are the villages managed?

Each village employs full time professional staff to manage the village. In addition, each village has its own local committee which comprises community and resident representatives who advise management on the affairs of the village. Decision making is taken on a consensus basis. At all times, these structures are accountable to the MHA Board of Directors.

What does the future hold for MHA?

MHA has stood the test of time, is a respected player in the industry, and provides a product that is much in demand. As South Africa's population ages, so the need for the services of the company will continue to grow.
