St. Theresa’s Home is built on a foundation of Christian values of love and care for others; especially for those less fortunate in our society. Although St. Theresa’s Home is no longer managed by the Little Sister, the home remains true to its heritage and guiding philosophies.
St. Theresa’s Home is today a nursing home, licensed by the Ministry of Health, Singapore with a capacity for 200 residents.
A nursing home, our team of trained and dedicated nurses and caregivers provide continual nursing care to our residents, most of whom are discharged from re-structured hospitals.
The home is also a place of residence for people who have significant difficulties coping with the required activities of daily routine. Our Physical and Occupational Therapist prescribe programmes, executed by their team of Therapy Aides to enhance the resident’s rehabilitation.
With the support of the Brothers of Mercy, who provide Pastoral Care; the home bear Catholic witnessing of Christian love and care, regardless of race or religion.
St. Theresa’s Home has been able to achieve its Vision and Mission by continually building on its Christian foundation. Its team of management and nursing care professionals provide a comprehensive nursing care programme and other well-balanced programmes to enhance the quality of life of the residents in their twilight years.
The home has been able to support the Ministry of Health’s mission of caring for the nation through the intercessions of our Blessed Mother Mary and by following in the footprints of our Lord Jesus Christ by serving with love, care and sacrifice.
Another contributing factor to the homes ability to achieve its standards in caregiving programmes, can be attribute to its location and architecture. The gracious colonial style buildings are sited next to MacRitchie Reservoir and is set far enough from the frenetic pace and noise of the world to provide a peaceful, serene and restful environment.
