SABA – Delegations from Saba Cares and public entity Saba, including Public Health Commissioner Rolando Wilson and Planning Office Chief Bobby Zagers, met in late January to discuss the purchase of two plots of land located in The Bottom for a new nursing center. establishment.

The land is purchased to build a new care facility for the elderly and vulnerable in the community of Saba.

Through a series of meetings with stakeholders, employees and the public held in 2019, Saba Cares asked the community what their “dream care facility” would be. With the help of housing company Woonlinie in the Netherlands, Saba Cares was able to create a vision based on all the feedback received.

Saba Cares, the public entity and the Department of Public Health, Welfare and Sports VWS have been working closely together for a year to make this vision a reality. In collaboration with Triatact, a housing consultancy company in the Netherlands, everything has been put in place to create a realistic and effective preparation.

Both plots of land are located in The Bottom, adjacent to land already owned by Saba Cares. The structures on these plots will soon be demolished so that the land can be prepared for construction later this year.
