President Rodrigo Roa Duterte recognized the efforts of the city government of Taguig in taking care of its senior citizens during his visit to the Taguig Center for the Elderly.

"I join the City Government of Taguig in its mission to alleviate the plight of the elderly population. As one of the countries highly urbanized cities, I give due recognition in its efforts in securing the welfare of this vulnerable sector," President Duterte said in his speech.

He added that the features at the Center for the Elderly and the programs of the Taguig for the seniors "will surely make them healthier and more productive as they endure old age. These also can be their source of strength and inspiration as they continue to enjoy their lives and share in our collective task of developing a nurturing society."

At the same time, Duterte endorsed the Taguig Center for the Elderly to other city and municipal governments in the country.

The five-story building is the project of the local government. It offers rest and recreation to the elders, from therapy pool, massage areas, cinema to a clinic and a dialysis center, among other amenities. Senior citizens also enjoy free bus rides to and from the center.

President Duterte encouraged the local officials to carry on the city's banner of "malasakit" for the elderly even as they continue to sustain Taguig's rapidly booming economy.

He also considered Taguigenos as "very lucky" because it is blessed with resources which are used for the common good.

“For me, this program is an honest proof of your solidarity with the national government in promoting inclusivity, fairness and good governance. May you continue to support this administration’s development agenda and I wish that your pursuit to uplift the lives of our senior citizens will be emulated by other city and municipal governments in the country,” he said said.

For his part, Taguig City Mayor Lino Cayetano said, “this center means that our elders have an esteemed place in this city, that they have a place where they can enjoy, pamper themselves, build their circles.”
