About Casa Caritas
Residential Home for the Mentally and Physically Disabled
The Casa Caritas Home for Physically and mentally Handicapped Persons is a non-profit and non-racial organization caring for persons mentally and physically impaired who are unable to be trained or educated. The Home has been rendering this service to the community since 1973 caring with compassion and dedication.
The support services we offer our residents include skilled nursing. Our professional, experienced staff develop individualized care plans for each resident.
Without the facilities that Casa Caritas offers, these residents would find life unpleasant and unmanageable because of their disabilities. We offer protection, care and love against the harsh realities and threats of today’s world.
We are so blessed and privileged to have receive a compliment earlier this year from the Department of Health, Gauteng. They informed us that we are one of the best facilities in Gauteng. We strive, every day, to ensure that we do not drop our standards and to be better tomorrow, the day after and for the future.
