Part of the home, as we see it today, was built in 1985 and the first residents moved in during November 1985. Later additions were made and in 1995 12 one, two and three bedroom cottages were built. Our home is privately run and is not dependent on funds from the Government. Fund raising is done in order to obtain extra funds, our Annual Sunshine Fair and Spring Tea are part of our fund raising efforts. Donations from Churches, schools, business and private institutions are received and anyone wanting to make a donation, can make contact with the office.
Bayswater Methodist Home for the Aged is located in the suburb of Bayswater in Bloemfontein. This home is the brain-child of Rev.Jack Scholtz who was the resident minister of Trinity Methodist Church at the time and his wife Mrs Joan Scholtz.
