People were having a difficult living environment and the aged and helpless elderly were lack of housing and care, therefore, the priest launched the residential service to provide a 'home' for them. Due to numerous of people serving, the Center was expanded to 5-storey in 1975.
Over the years, the Center kept changing and optimizing the living environment, facilities, equipment, and services, so as to ensure the elderly living here enjoy their twilight years gladly. Besides, in order to enhance the professionalism of the services, the Center recruits multi-disciplinary staff, including doctors, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, pharmacy technicians.
The Center provides accommodation and meals for the female elderly, health-care services, daily-caring services, and rehabilitative treatments which lead them to a safe and comfortable home-life. Through counseling, group activities, social and recreational activities, they can fulfill and develop their potentials, meanwhile, reintegrate into the group-life and the society.
