With lights in her room, she can see the vivid colours of her creation throughout the day.
Auntie Lee loves colouring. She enjoys the daily activity with her friends at our elderly shelter. The ability to bring life to a plain picture with her shades gives her a sense of accomplishment.
With the lights in her room, she can admire the vivid colors of her creation throughout the day. It's a simple joy she does not take for granted.
Our Home pays more than $80,000 a year on utility bills, a basic essential our elderly residents cannot do without.
As a long-term accommodation, our elderly residents can look forward to four meals a day, laundry service, cognitive and physical activities, and more.
We appeal for your support so our elderly residents can age in comfort and dignity in our Home.
We are not a government-subvented Home, and we largely depends on public's generosity to continue our work as a Registered Charity.
Thank you for donating generously.
About the Charity
A Shelter for needy elderly persons.
Established in Dec. 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. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.
We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.
We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.
The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
