SENIORS’ BREAK. Residents of DSWD Home for the Aged in Tagum City take a break as they frolic at 4 Sisters Beach Resort in Barangay Pindasan, Mabini, Compostela Valley for their quarterly socialization. Established in 1978 and currently serving 61 residents, the Home is a residential facility that provides social, medical, dietary and health services to homeless and poor older persons 60 years old and above. It also facilitates location of the seniors’ relatives for their possible reintegration with their family.

Moreover, the Home serves as a social laboratory where students of Nursing, Physical Therapy, Medicine, and even caregivers learn proper care and management of older persons as they obtain a more meaningful understanding and handling of the aging process. (DSWD)
