Old Men's Home
Old Men's Home.
This place is situated at Ashburton, and is a home for old men past work, in circumstances distressing enough to call in the aid of charity. It is under the control of the same Board that dispenses gratuitously most of our charities, and answers the purpose as well as the funds at the disposal of the Board will admit. Unfortunately, it is always full; and, indeed, were it much larger, it would not do more than meet requirements.
