STRENGHTHENING OF ELDERLY ASSOCIATION

 

The organization of Older Persons in the Province of Laguna started during the early 2000’s wherein the 29 municipalities and city federated into an association called the LAGUNA SENIOR CITIZEN ASSOCIATION (LASCA).

The purpose of the Association is to focus on the problems, issues and concerns o the Senior Citizen, like health, mobility, livelihood, benefits, ID’s, etc.

The meeting of the Asosciation held every first Tuesday of every month regularly at the OSCA building of Sta. Cruz, Laguna, wherein the Provincial Government provides for their meals.

Presently, every member  of the Association which is  componed o f the Presidents of 26 municipalities and 4 cities are provided with financial  assistance  in the amount of Php 1,500.00 per month.  The LASCA office is soon to be inaugurated near the OSCA BUilding in Sta. Cruz, Laguna. 

Every year the celebration of Older Persons Week is celebrated on October 1-7 at the Cultural Center of Laguna, wherein Cultural presentation and other activities are held.

With the  approval of R.A. 9994, additional benefits  for the Senior Citizens were granted,  the exemption from paying  VAT particularly and the granting of Php 500.00 assistance to indigent  Senior Citizen per month by next year.
