These are the values that led to the establishment of the Home almost six decades ago. They continue to guide us in our work of providing not just shelter but creating a home for the elderly to age with care.
We are not funded by any agencies, but this does not stop us from providing a homely environment and holistic care to our residents.
This is only possible because of the support of friends like you.
St. John's Home has provided shelter and care to more than 1,200 elderly persons throughout the past 60 years. Together, we can continue this legacy for another 60 years and beyond.
About the Charity
Established in December 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60. Our mission is to provide shelter and care for the physical and spiritual needs of such elderly persons as have no home or suitable accommodation and no children or close relatives who have adequate facilities for looking after them. The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed. St John's Home for Elderly Persons is not a government-funded organisation. We depend on the generosity of the public to continue our works. Due to urban planning and the need to maximise land use, the Home is raising funds to construct a five-storey building, on one third of our existing land area. The estimated construction cost of the new building is $15 million. We invite you to join us in this exciting new journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our elderly residents will not be displaced when our land tenancy expires. The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014 (Non-profit). Website Link : www.stjohneldershome.org.sg
