The City of Taguig, through its Office of the Senior Citizen Affairs (OSCA), opened to senior citizens from EMBO areas its Center for the Elderly on Monday, October 9. 2023.
ย A total of 100 senior citizens from Barangay Pembo enjoyed their visit filled with fun and engaging activities. They were treated to a comprehensive tour and had the opportunity to avail of the facility’s free services, including sauna and massage sessions, foot spas, movie screenings, and refreshments.
ย As part of the local government’s Transformative, Lively, and Caring Agenda, the City aims to provide elderly residents from EMBO a first-hand experience of the facility’s excellent amenities encouraging them to unwind, recharge, and rejuvenate.
ย The Center for the Elderly features an array of amenities including a therapy pool, a clinic, a sauna and massage room, a cinema/mini theater, a multi-purpose hall/recreational area, and a rooftop garden.
ย The facility also houses the Taguig Geriatric Program which was launched in partnership with St. Lukeโ€™s Medical Center, offering senior citizens comprehensive health services, including consultations and evaluations by medical professionals. Senior Citizens can have their memory, visual, and hearing skills assessed on Tuesdays, while Informative lectures and forums on topics like depression, dementia, osteoporosis, and eating habits are held on Thursdays.
ย Aside from the available amenities and programs, the Center for the Elderly is also a space where senior citizens can experience a strong sense of community. Bienvenido C. Gonzalez Jr., a 66-year-old resident from Barangay Pembo lauded the facility and its staff.
He expressed how grateful he is to Taguig for prioritizing the elderly and encouraged fellow senior citizens to visit the center. โ€œMaganda ang mga facilities. Magagaling din ang mga nag-aassist. Libangan talaga ng mga senior kaya maraming salamat. Sana maakit ‘yung ibang senior na pumasyal.
Ako at aking mga kasamahaan na nagpunta rito ay nagpapasalamat sa pamahalaang lungsod ng Taguig. Alam po namin na mas priority niyo ang mga matatanda kaya salamat po sa pagbibigay ng oportunidad para sa ganitong pagtitipon na pati isip mo ay marerelax,โ€ Gonzalez added. Felicidad Paloma, a 74-year-old resident of Barangay Pembo enjoyed the free massage during her time at the facility.
Aside from encouraging fellow EMBO senior citizens to visit, she expressed how much she wants to come back and enjoy the amenities again. โ€œVery good yung pagmasahe sa akin nawala yung sakit ng likod ko. Nawala din yung tusok-tusok sa paa ko. Kapag may chance, babalik at babalik ako rito. Nirerekomenda ko ang mga seniors na manood ng sine dito at maglibang-libang, hindi ‘yung parati lang nasa bahay,โ€ Paloma said.
ย The facility is set to give a tour to other senior citizens from Brgy. Rizal, Brgy. East Rembo, Brgy. Cembo, Brgy. Post Proper Southside, Brgy. Pitogo, Brgy. Comembo, Brgy. Post Proper Northside, Brgy. South Cembo, and Brgy. West Rembo in the coming days. As the Elderly Filipino Week 2023 celebration continues, the City is actively reaching out to Taguigueรฑo senior citizens, including those residing in EMBO, to participate in activities launched especially for them and avail of the City’s many free services.
