Established in 1988, the home caters for the frail and the aged in the metro. Although the home was established by Indians for the Indian community, from day one the home has accepted residents irrespective of race, colour or creed. Currently only 25 % of the residents are of Indian origin.

The home provides 24 hour care with a matron, staff nurse and ward aids. Residents are provided with all meals and laundry services. The home receives a nominal subsidy from the Department of Social Services while residents contribute 90 % of their pension towards the running of the home. All other funding is by way of donations of cash or kind by the community and a few businesses.
