Żebbuġ since 2023

Situated in Żebbuġ, the home transformed an abandoned factory into a five-story haven with spacious rooms, natural light, and comprehensive facilities.


Designed to cater to the needs of 30 residents, DAR Bjorn Żebbuġ goes beyond providing 24/7 nursing care and specialized treatment. It features a range of amenities, including a playground, small shop, chapel, cafeteria, gym, and therapy pool. The first floor serves as a space for events and includes an art and whisky section, the proceeds of which go to support ALS Malta.

Respite coming soon

As an integral part of DAR Bjorn Żebbuġ, DAR Bjorn Respite aims to provide short-term care and support for individuals, allowing them a respite from their usual environment. This temporary relief not only benefits the residents but also provides a break for their families and caregivers who shoulder the responsibility of their care.


This noble endeavor, however, requires significant funding to become a reality. To support DAR Bjorn Respite and contribute to its success, DAR Bjorn organizes an annual telethon, bringing together celebrities, artists, and the community to raise funds and awareness. Donations during this event play a crucial role in making DAR Bjorn Respite a meaningful and impactful addition to the neurological care landscape in Malta.
