"We chose St. Joseph’s Home because they cater to the elderly regardless of race and religion. It also helps that the home is located very near to NatSteel Asia so it facilitates our volunteers going down for activities. [Those plans are] in the pipeline," said NatSteel Asia’s Liu Fang Joo.
St. Joseph’s Home was set up by Catholic Welfare Services in 1978 to "provide shelter, care and love for the aged and destitute, regardless of race of religion". The home has been run by Canossian Sisters since. A hospice was set up in 1985. The home moved to its current premises at Jurong Road in 1993. -By Joyce Gan
