New Policy and Fee Structure
The new building for St John’s Home for Elderly Persons, at 1 Willow Avenue, Singapore 347508, is nearing completion. If all goes well, we hope to move there in June 2021.
Residents will enjoy vastly improved facilities in the new building;
4 Residents in a 47sqm Room
In addition, residents will live in a 47sqm apartment, with a pantry, a small lounge with a TV, an attached toilet and a bathroom. You will have your own cosy corner of 4.5 sqm, with a comfortable Libra bed, closet, and writing table, with curtains for privacy.
High Technology for Optimum Health Care
The Home will be equipped with high sophisticated technology that will monitor residents’ movements and activities at all times. To prevent falls, administer timely care and track meals taken. Communication systems will enable residents to keep in touch with loved ones with ease.
Improved physiotherapy facilities including a hydrotherapy pool
A new area for physiotherapy will be available to all residents who are able to participate in such activities under the guidance of a therapist. For those who are less able, the use of a hydrotherapy pool will be beneficial to them.
Our Home is run based on Christian values and principles and we offer shelter to any elderly person regardless of race or religion. Whatever your needs are, please feel free to call us for a discussion.
As part of the overall improvements, increased fees will be applicable to new admissions to the Home at SGD 1500 per month plus GST.
The new fees are applicable to all residents from 1 June 2021.
For more details and information on rooms and cost, please contact the General Manager.
St Johns’ Home for Elderly Homes will continue to be a Home for the elderly in need of shelter so none of our residents will be denied accommodation for financial reasons. We have therefore established a Financial Aid Fund, which will subsidise the fees for residents who cannot afford the fees stated above.
If you need financial assistance, you are invited to apply for a subsidy. Please approach the General Manager for the application form.
