Algoa Bay Council For The Aged

Welcome to Algoa Bay Council for the Aged


Algoa Bay Council for the Aged was established in 1961 when the need to co-ordinate services to the aged in Port Elizabeth was recognized. We started rendering social work services in 1966 and opened Port Elizabethís first service centre for the elderly in 1967. 

Algoa Bay Council for the Aged has been in existence for 42 years. Constantly striving towards improved service delivery that will increase independence and equip the elderly, and in particular the sub-economic elderly to face the challenges of aging in the community.

To My Children

When I spill some food on my nice clean dress, or maybe forget to tie my shoes,
Please be patient and perhaps reminisce about the many hours I spent with you, teaching you how to eat with care, dress yourself and comb your hair.

Those were precious hours I spent with you, so if I tell the story one more time and you know the ending through and through,
Please remember your first nursery rhyme when I rehearsed it a hundred times with you

When my legs are tired and itís hard to stand or walk the steady path as I would like to do,
Please take me carefully by the hand and guide me now as I often did for you.

Forget-me-not. Vergeet-my-nie. Ungandilibali.
