Who We Are
The Pretoria Hindu Society
The Pretoria Hindu Society (PHS) was formed in 1996 by the Pretoria Hindu Organisation, the umbrella body that represents the interests of all Hindu linguistic groups in Pretoria since 1971. Its initial mandate was to build the first school in South Africa with a specific Hindu ethos, which simultaneously provided an excellent secular education.
In 2015, PHS sold the school to Amity International, an institution with a world-wide reputation for quality education and who run over 15 schools and five universities in different countries.
The proceeds of the sale have been used to build the first-ever retirement home in Laudium, that caters specifically to the needs of our community.
We are a dedicated band of volunteer community workers whose primary objective is to leave the society better off than we found it.
Laudium Retirement Home
Laudium Retirement Home is a 28 bed in-patient facility offering holistic comprehensive care and support-palliative care to all its patients, and offering support to their families.
The Retirement Home is situated in Laudium Ext. 1, servicing not only the greater Pretoria region, but open to all communities in South Africa.
What Our Residents Say
“I have been in another home before this one, and I want to say that this place is really the best place to be. We have a resident nurse who ensures all our health needs are catered for and a very caring staff and management.”
“This Retirement Home is like a home away from home. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I recommend this place for all who need a warm and secure place to stay.”
“Because of dizzy spells, I could no longer look after myself. At first I was not happy to be here, but now I am really enjoying staying here. We have three cooks who make sure that the food is to our liking and the staff are always willing to help. Would recommend you surely…”
“I am from Ventersdorp and I often long to go back to my old home. But I know that this place is best for someone like me with my health problems. The staff is hardworking and do everything to make us comfortable. The food is tasteful and my medication is given to me on time!”
