Ross Home is counting down to celebrating their centenary which are happening over Labour Weekend, in October 2018.
Ross Home is the oldest Presbyterian Support owned care home in New Zealand. It was named after John Ross (later Sir John Ross) who donated a ten-acre block of valuable land in North East Valley in 1917 – on the condition that money be raised to help build and support homes for the aged.
Ross Home has expended and grown significantly over the century. It now has five wings and is home for 124 residents. There are 10 cottages surrounding Ross Home, and those who live in the cottages are an active part of the Ross Home community.
Registrations to attend the weekend are $20 each. For more information about Ross Home and the Centenary celebrations, or to register to attend the weekend, call in to the home at 360 North Rd, or phone them on 03 473 0029.
