Residential home for the elderly inaugurated in Attard
Roseville, the new residential home for the elderly in Attard, was this evening inaugurated by Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi.
The home, which welcomes its first residents next week, is owned and managed by CareMalta Group. The company has invested €5 million in the project.
CareMalta chairman Nazzareno Vassallo said that through this project, the company also managed to restore one of Malta’s Art Nouveau architectural gems and save it from years of abandon and ruin.
The house was built around 90 years ago and it was now to provide reception, lounge and administration facilities for this new residential home for the elderly.”
Mr Vassallo explained the facilities on offer at Roseville, including comfortable accommodation for up to 130 residents, dining areas, multi-purposes rooms, a gymnasium, a private hall where residents and their families can organise events, a private garden and even a chapel.
CEO Natalie Briffa Farrugia said that the opening of CareMalta’s seventh facility for the elderly was an important milestone in the company’s history of achievements.
Roseville’s residents, she said, would be given the best care, attention, accommodation and privacy and the company would continually invest in the training of its staff, which ultimately was beneficial for clients.
Ms Briffa Farrugia said that CareMalta was the only organisation in Malta accredited by City&Guilds to provide training in elderly care.
This new home, she said, would be staffed by the first graduates of these courses.
The public can view Roseville on June 5 and 6 between 10.30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m.
Roseville is the seventh residential home for the elderly operated by CareMalta, which falls under the Vassallo Group of Builders. The group operates six other similar facilities around Malta and employs more than 500 people.
