DENR 9 Employees Celebrate “Linggo ng Katandaang Filipino

            The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) IX observed the Linggo ng Katandaaang Pilipino through a lecture-demo on Basic Life Support Training Course by Hamza Laguiab of the 1st Infantry TABAK Division and Home-Based Livelihood/Entrepreneurial Opportunities by Virgie Crumb of Peaches and Blossoms Catering last October 10, 2016 at the Kalikasan Court, DENR IX Compound, Pagadian City.

 Then President Fidel V. Ramos declared the first week of October as “Linggo ng Katandaang Filipino” (Elderly Filipino Week) through Proclamation No. 470 issued on September 26, 1994 to give emphasis on the important role of older persons in nation-building, and to raise and address issues concerning the sector.  This year’s theme, “Pagmamahal at Respeto ng Nakababata, Nagpapaligaya sa Nakatatanda”, emphasizes that older persons should be loved, cared for, and respected.

Forty (40) senior citizen participants from the DENR regional office, PENRO Zamboanga del Sur and CENROs Ramon Magsaysay and Guipos also availed of medical services, such as random blood sugar screening and blood pressure measurement, foot and back massage, manicure and pedicure. “Pangkabuhayan Starter” rewards such as kitchen and food preparation appliances were also raffled off during the event.

“Early training for retirement can be a preventive measure in avoiding problems and depression after retirement,” said DENR IX Regional Director Arleigh J. Adorable.  “With this activity, Senior Citizen (SC) personnel can develop decision-making skills and the ability to be flexible; they can ward off many problems later in life especially on financial and non-financial areas,” he added.  (WA DENRIX RPAO)
