Brief History of Tuiniqua
Tuiniqua Care Centre has been looking after the elderly members of George community for well over 30 years! The aim has always been to provide affordable housing and care to the members of George community in their later years to both residents and members alike. From its inception in 1984, Tuiniqua has always been a non-profit organization, providing much needed Care to those that might not otherwise be able to afford it. Tuiniqua Care Centre has not only grown in size over the years, but has also grown in heart, becoming a big part of George community as a whole.
