Angeles opens first city-run home for the aged
The Angeles City government has launched the first city government-run home for the aged called “Bale Pusu.”
“No homeless senior citizens. No elderly will stay on the streets,” Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. said during the launch of the project on September 15.
“Lingapan tala pu, pakit tamu ing lugud Angeleño para kareng mangatwa,” the mayor added.
Bale Pusu is located in Barangay Sta. Teresita, according to officials.
It can accommodate eight to 12 homeless female senior citizens.
It will have a receiving area, activity area, bedrooms, mess hall and kitchen.
Bale Pusu will have working staff composed of social workers and additional house parents from the CSWDO. There will also be daily activities for the elderly.
Doctors and health workers from the Rafael Lazatin Memorial Medical Center led by Dr. Froilan Canlas will conduct regular check-ups on the housed seniors.
