Description:
Villa Terenzio is a not-for-profit organization serving the community for over 50 years.
Paolo Silvestri was a Sicilian born migrant who came to Perth in the 1920s. Paolo became an esteemed member of the small Italian community in Perth and was the founding President of the Saint Joseph Association whose Chapel has since been erected in the grounds of the Villa Terenzio facility. The official opening of Paolo’s vision occurred on 28 November 1982 known as Italian Aged Care Home or Villa Terenzio after the name of the Italian Consul appointed to Western Australia at that time, Dr Salvatore Terenzio.
In 2017, Villa Terenzio was able to expand its services to home care. This has proved to be an excellent service enabling older people to remain in their own homes for a longer period.
Villa Terenzio remains a charitable organization and a sanctuary for older people of Italian descent and others who share and appreciate Mediterranean culture and its way of life.
