Madam Chan is part of our Community
Madam Chan, aged 86, has no children and is unable to care for herself.
At St John's Home, she stays in a spacious four-bedded room with attached bath and toilet facilities, where she can also watch TV in a small pantry.
At mealtimes, she joins her fellow residents to eat and socialize in a big dining hall.
She wears a watch that helps to monitor her movements in case she falls or misses her meals.
In the mornings she also goes for physiotherapy sessions, specially curated to suit her needs.
In the evenings, we see her in the roof top garden where she helps to grow some vegetables.
Some days, volunteers come to give her a hair trim, conduct art classes or take her out on outings!
This Christmas, we will make sure that our residents like Mdm Chan will also feel the warmth of a community at St John's Home, even though she does not have her family with her.
We need your continued support to keep residents like Madam Chan thriving in a Living Community where she is cared for by people dedicated to her physical and emotional well-being.
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. Your donations will be greatly appreciated.
