0 281

The Palawan Sangguniang Panglalawigan has passed a resolution calling for the establishment of Home Care Support Services for senior citizens and persons with disability.

The resolution was passed during the SP’s 11th Regular asking Dr. Mary Ann H. Navarro, Officer-in Charge of Provincial Health Office, to draft the ways and means to established the said Home Care Support Services.

Board Member Sharon Abiog-Onda authored the said resolution.

“[N]asasad sa Section 15, Article II ng 1987 Philippine Constitution na kinakailangan na protektahan at itaguyod ng Estado ang kalusugan ng mamamayan,” Abiog-Onda said.

“Sa Section 11, Article XIII nakasaad din na ang estado ay dapat magpatibay ng malawakan at komprehensibong pamamaraan tungo sa pagkakaroon ng maayos na kalusugan ng mga mamamayan at tiyakin na naibibigay ang tamang serbisyong sosyal at medikal sa mga mamamayan lalo na sa mga naghihikahos na maysakit, mga nakakatanda at may kapansanan,” she added.

The SP said that indigent PWDs and bed ridden senior citizens will benefit from the program.

“Sa pamamagitan ng hospice care services (home care support) mabibigyan ng serbisyong medikal ang mga indigent PWDs at mga bed ridden na senior citizens na walang kakayanan na magpagamot sa mga ospital at iba pang health institutions,” said the SP.
