Our Programmes: Nursing Homes

Villa Francis Home for the Aged

Villa Francis Home for the Aged was built to house old folks, destitute and sick, who were kept in ad-hoc shelters not much better than chicken coops in the 60s & 70s. In 1970, the physical conditions and nursing care at the Dragon Lotus and Yew Tee Homes were found to be so deplorable that the Singapore Council of Social Service decided to build a permanent home to house these people. The Sisters of Franciscan Missionary of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) were asked to run the new home.

In 2001, CWS took over the management of Villa Francis Home. In July 2006, the Canossian Sisters were appointed by the Archbishop to manage and operate the Home under the CWS Nursing Homes Management Committee.

Villa Francis Home strives to provide a positive and cheerful living environment for its residents, a community where residents have a sense of belonging and are happy to call it "our home". It is the vision of Villa Francis to become a Person-Centred Home which values Human Dignity.

Villa Francis provides a continuum of holistic care with love, care and compassion, through a spectrum of comprehensive, well-balanced programme in nursing and spiritual care, hence enhancing the quality of life.
