The Home was officially opened in 1981. At that time, the accommodation capacity of the Home was only 14. In August 1993, a proposal was made to expand the Home through conversion of the then Residents Committee's Office and Kindergarten also located at the void deck of HDB Block 195 Kim Keat Avenue. The proposal was approved and the extension was completed in 1994 to accommodate 24 more residents.

We have been granted Institution of Public Character (IPC) status since 1996.
