“Isinagawa ng City Social Welfare and Development “Ang Wellness & Promotion of Healthy Ageing” kung saan nagbigay ng mahahalagang payo si Dra.

“Dumalo sa okasyon ang mga miyembro ng Sangguniang Panlungsod na pinangunahan ng inyong lingkod, at dito ay ipinahayag natin ang administrasyong Mayor Arnan katuwang ang Sangguniang Panlungsod ay patuloy na binibigyan ng prayoridad ang kagalingan at pangangalaga ng mga Calapenong senior citizen,” the vice mayor said.

Just recently, the city government of Calapan has launched the “Gold Card” program which provides free monthly supply of maintenance medicines for senior citizens.
