Since its inception in 1958, The Helderberg Society for the Aged has grown from a small Rotary initiative to providing retirement solutions & caring for over 660 residents. Our foundation of care rests on our Four Pillars of Service: Independent Living, Assisted Living, Frail Care and Clinical Services.  The HSFA has accommodation in Somerset West to suit all stage of your retirement journey.

The Helderberg Society for the Aged is a Non-Profit organisation (002-846 NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation and can issue you with a Section 18A donation certificate which you can use for tax purposes. 



Developed for senior citizens who still enjoy an active and social lifestyle, but who require safe and secure accommodation, with easy access to community amenities and services.


These units are for senior citizens who still enjoy their independence, 
but who doesn’t want the responsibility of household chores.


Developed for the families of those older persons who find themselves in the fragile stage of life- requiring 24-hour care and supervision in a way that will help them retain their dignity.


This service offers caring and cleaning  to HSFA residents at our Independent and Assisted Living Units.


This is a community based care programme where older persons in the  community can receive organised programmes and activities.

Thank you. I appreciate you catering for all personality types! My Dad is not one for being interactive or social, yet you let him be and allow him to be comfortable in his own skin. Thank you for that. Could not have found a better place for him.

Dear Rika, Thank you very much for your email and the wonderful support and care you showed my father in the last weeks, moving him into a care facility was a very difficult choice to make but it was definitely the Best choice as your staff were absolutely wonderful, they showed such care and attention to my father and I know he felt a lot more comfortable than he anticipated. We are all very thankful for your kindness and the wonderful people in the home. I hope this finds you well.
