A History of Caring

The Cape Peninsula Organisation for the Aged (CPOA) was founded in 1953 by a group of volunteers with a vision to improve the quality of life for the elderly. Over the years the organisation has grown, expanded and truly become The Retirement Specialist, now offering a large number of retirement facilities and care centres in the western cape.

CPOA’s founding mission was to provide housing to those older retirees who did not have the financial means to adequately care for themselves in old age.

In recent years CPOA has also grown it’s service offering in the more economic retirement sector. Proceeds from the resale of Life Right units from this area of the organisation are redirected to fund the company’s continued commitment to Welfare Retirement.

Nevertheless CPOA continues to rely on external sponsors and donations from covenants and bequests to be able to run and manage welfare facilities for the increasing number of South African State Pensioners in need.

CPOA aims to provide accommodation

and care to elderly persons thereby

promoting quality of life, independence

and preservation of dignity
