Wednesday,  July 22, 2009 –  The National Council of and for  Older Persons of  Saint Lucia is looking forward to the actual commencement of construction of the long awaited Day Care Centre for the elderly in the community of La Clery.


The building which previously housed the old La Clery Police Station was demolished last week to make way for the construction of the new structure.  Executive Director of the Council, Helen Charles says the Council’s main office will also be relocated to La Clery.


“We had the ground turning ceremony for our adult Day Care Centre in the La Clery area. That facility will cater for 20 older persons. We will also have a soup kitchen. We will deliver food for older persons within the community,” she said.


The National Council of and for Older Persons has also been recognising the organizations which have acted in support of the care and well being of older citizens.


"The Saint Lucia Social Development Fund,  the Basic Needs Trust Fund, the Caribbean Development Bank, the Japanese government,  the Taiwanese government and members of Club 60 are organizations supporting this initiative,” said the Executive Director of the National Council of and for Older Persons.”


The Day Care  Centre for the elderly is being constructed in the Castries North Constituency represented by Prime Minister Stephenson King, who was on hand to witness the significant milestone.
