Caring for the elderly for over 30 years.


Welcome to HADCA

Howick and District Council for the Care of the Aged (HADCA) is a not-for-profit organisation based in Howick in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. We've been in the business of caring for the elderly in Howick and surrounds for over 30 years, and provide a wide range of retirement and residential accommodation units. As well as providing a wide range of retirement and residential accommodation units, HADCA's community based nursing team is kept busy tending to the needs of our elderly in the community.
