Christmas rings a positive bell for most of us. It has a positive vibe that exudes cheer and inspires the spirit of giving.

For St. John’s Home for Elderly Persons’ resident, Mdm Julia Wee (not her real name), Christmas was usually a simply affair. She and her husband’s friends would come over to their house, and she would cook curry and make Kueh Pei Ti Their friends loved her Kueh Pei Ti.

Nowadays, Christmas is spent with the kind-hearted volunteers and visitors of St. John’s Home. There would be buffet, Christmas presents and table games.

Sometimes, she does miss the good old days when she get to cook for her loved ones.

But Mdm Wee is grateful that volunteers spend time with elderly persons like herself, especially during festive seasons like Christmas.

Make a pledge today, and help needy / homeless elderly persons like Mdm Wee.
Ask your family members and loved ones to make a donation to St. John’s Home instead of buying you a Christmas present.

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 to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them. The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed. We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity. Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area of 3,300sqm. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the remaining 8,924sqm land area that we are currently occupying. We are presently constructing a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land, to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. We began construction in November 2018 and when we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. We invite you to join us in this exciting journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our Residents will not be displaced. The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, and the Charity Transparency Award (2018). Website Link : www.stjohneldershome.org.sg
