St Andrew's Cathedral Home runs a residential home for older women and provides services to the underserved.Sharing Our Vision
Currently, the Home provides for the physical, spiritual, emotional and well-being of the residents. Attention is paid to the physical environment and care the residents receive; the range of activities they can participate in; the interaction they continue to have with the larger community - friends and relatives, church, neighbourhood and the experience of God’s love and provision. It is a home where the residents can call their own.Our Legacy
St Andrew’s Cathedral helps individuals with financial difficulties through its welfare committee. In the late seventies, this committee recognized the needs of Singapore’s greying population and the need for the Cathedral to make provisions for elderly members who have no family to care and support them. The lesson in the Gospel made it compelling for such a response. In the parable of the Good Samaritan, Jesus painted a vivid scene of a loving and caring individual going to the rescue of a needy stranger, ministering to him and arranging for his accommodation and care. Jesus added to his story the command to “Go and do likewise.” Thus, the Home opened its doors on 11 Oct 1980.
The Home consists of three dormitories, a sitting cum dining room, and a recreational hall. It is able to accommodate 24 female residents.
Throughout the year, individual members of St Andrew’s Cathedral, schools, other churches, and organizations visit the residents. These volunteers also organize activities and outings for the residents.
The staff consists of a full-time supervisor, an admin and programme executive, nursing aides, and a cook.Who Do We Serve?
