In 1983, Centro de Dia da Ilha Verde (“Ilha Verde Elderly Centre”) was founded by Fr. Luis Ruiz Suarez. At that time, St. Paul’s Clinic used to be a leisure place for the elderly in the Conselheiro Borja. The clinic was demolished in 1991 and was temporarily operated at Asilo de Betania (“Betania Elderly Home”) for the elderly. In August 1992, the Social Welfare Bureau provided a new venue for the centre to continue serving the elderly in the district. With the improvement of facilities, it gradually developed into a diversified day centre for the elderly.



    1.   Day Care Centre for the Elderly

With the concept of community care, our centre aims to provide the elderly with a healthy and fulfilling life in the community. We encourage them to develop their potential, enhance their understanding and participation in the community, and build a caring community for the elderly.

    2.   Residential Care and Support Service

Our centre provides residential care and support services for the vulnerable and the needy, so that they can receive appropriate care to enhance and improve their quality of life and reside in the community comfortably

3.  Care giver support services

Our centre provides appropriate support to care givers so as to enhance their caring skills and help them cope with daily stress, as well as enhancing the quality of care for the elderly.
