The Imperial Awaits Visitors with Open Weekend to Celebrate Anniversary in June

Celebrating its first-year anniversary, The Imperial holds open weekend

Celebrating its first-year anniversary, The Imperial in Sliema will be hosting an open weekend on 4 and 5 June, between 10 am and 7 pm. Having extensively expanded its services over the past year to further support independent living, residents can experience exceptional care in this residential home managed by St George’s Care.

The Imperial opened its doors early in May 2021, following extensive renovations and refurbishment of the historical hotel building in the heart of Sliema. First owned by Pietru Pawlu Galea, the property, originally built for Galea’s children, was turned into a hunting and shooting lodge. In 1874, the Sliema Shooting Club with its large gardens was transformed into a grand hotel: The Modern Imperial Hotel.

Restoring the grandeur of the old Imperial Hotel building whilst preserving its magnificent architectural heritage, The Imperial now consists of single rooms, double rooms and suites with 6,000 square metres of facilities and a three-storey underground car park. The new residence adopted and has operated based on the more than two-decade-long expertise of St George’s Care, which also manages its sister home Casa Antonia in Balzan.

Living with this ethos, residents can enjoy high standards and genuine dedication from carers in the residential home that is all about empowering people to live independently. At the residential homes of St George’s Care, residents are always encouraged to participate in events and activities that empower active ageing. We are committed to assisting our residents in staying in charge of their lives for the longest time possible, as they enjoy their golden age.

The Casa Antonia and The Imperial residents have themselves organised fun and insightful events as well as activities for their peers to based on their own professional experience, knowledge and life-long interests.

As part of our celebrations for our first-year anniversary, The Imperial is organising an open weekend on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 June, between 10 am and 7 pm. During this special weekend in June, visitors will be able to join guided tours (and receive raffle tickets for each booked tour) in the facility, which will be followed by tea in the garden. Our dedicated team will provide information about The Imperial’s care options during the open weekend.

Thrive physiotherapists will offer free physiotherapy assessments to visitors, while our qualified nurses will provide free medical parameters checkups. Additionally, those visitors who decide to make bookings during the open weekend will be eligible for special rates in The Imperial. To make the event particularly celebratory, the courtyard will host live music, and on Sunday, 5 June, the traditional Malta Artisan Market will be held from 10 am onwards.

The Imperial and Casa Antonia are homes that care. Based on our decades-long experience of excellent care, we pay special attention to active ageing for the benefit of our residents. For more information call +356 2145 6440 and arrange for a visit to one of our residential homes.
