Zejtun Home for the Elderly Refurbished
The Zejtun Home for the Elderly was refurbished and a new wing was added to the building. The new wing consists of eight new bedrooms where five of these have a kitchenette and an en-suite. The other three rooms have a shower and a common kitchenette.
The Zejtun residence opened its doors for the elderly in 1994. A year later a day centre for the elderly was opened within the same premises.
Mario Galea, Parliamentary Secretary for the Elderly and Community Care while visiting the Zejtun Residence for the Elderly said that “During this legislature the government provided 1000 beds for the elderly needing long term care. 3000 employees are employed within the elderly sector. “
Galea added that “So far, the government bought 418 beds in the PPP scheme. During the past few months, bed capacity increased at Mellieha and Zejtun Homes for the Elderly and Zammit Clapp Nursing Home. presently the Zejtun residence employs 120 workers and offers its services to more than 200 residents.”
