Villa Anna Teresa announces €25 million investment for 115-bed residence

Arrigo Group of Hotels to restore Villa Anna Teresa for 115-bed residential home for the elderly

The Arrigo Group of Hotels’ subsidiary Villa Anna Teresa Holdings has announced a €25 million investment for the Villa Anna Teresa home for the elderly in St Julian’s, as well as the creation of 100 new jobs.

The company said it will restore and conserve the unscheduled Villa Anna Teresa in a bid to safeguard its surrounding environment and cultural heritage, as well as placing human dignity at the centre of the operation.

Villa Anna Teresa will host 115 residential beds, and offer a care-at-home service from March, as well as independent and assisted living services, daycare centre services for dementia patients, respite services, memory clinics and art psychotherapy.

“The services at Villa Anna Teresa follow international best practice and we will give our contribution to strengthen national standards for the care of the elderly,” CEO Brian St John said.

Prime Minister Robert Abela and his wife Dr Lydia Abela attended the announcement ceremony.

St John said the decision to elevate the care of the elderly to the level of a ministry in the recent Cabinet reshuffle had been a wise one. “This is a project that is happening on the initiative of three generations of a family business, that is, by ‘grandchildren’. Indeed, it’s this generation’s first major project. This government is working well and must encourage and offer incentives for family businesses to be easier to manage and less bureacratic when these are passed on to the new generation.”
