Our Institutions - Home for the Aged San Fernando

In 1930, the foundation stone of the Home for the Aged was laid by the Archbishop of Port of Spain on lands donated by Ste. Madeline Sugar Company Ltd. situated at the Corner of Ruth and Independence Avenues, San Fernando .

The first phase of the building was completed in 1932 and housed twenty ladies. In 1937, the Home was open to both Men and Women. At present there are about fifty residents.

The home is maintained y the St. Christopher's Conference and since 1986 they have conducted fund raising events and sought assistance from corporate sponsors in order to build a New Home.

The New Home is calculated to cost $6.2 million and Republic Bank has donated 3 million dollars. The sod turning ceremony took place in July 2004 and construction started in November 2004. At this stage the bulk excavation and foundation block work is completed. The building should be completed at the end of this year 2005.
