The care home was originally housed in the villa that was donated by Vasiliki Sossidou. In 1971 a new building was constructed with government funds, the contribution of residents of Imathia Prefecture and the Church. The care home is one of two nonprofit care homes in the prefecture of Imathia. It currently hosts 41 residents out of which 26 are bedridden.
