About Us

The phenomenon of the abandoned elderly is clear evidence of poverty; it is one of the most vivid indications as shortcoming of national Family policy. The increasing number of Filipino abandoned elderly found themselves in special difficult circumstances over and about the conditions of low family income, ill health and illiteracy among others.
In general the abandoned elderly are significantly one of the vulnerable, deprived and underprivileged sectors of society. More often they are in high risk category and remain suffering in silence. There is resounding dream to be loved and recognized. The abandoned elderly continue to be the victims of both natural and man-made disasters after either in the most developed countries and in major developing countries like the Philippines. The realities of the abandoned elderly continue to be treated in the global and local situation.

The seemingly rapid devastating conditions of the elderly are alarming and disheartening which reflect a perplex image of our very own country. However the situation of the situation of the abandoned elderly today is still a call and a challenge to all, which need timely and quality responses from the GO’s, NGO’s, and the church. The need to coordinate and have further action towards a common direction of the abandoned elderly is so vivid.

There is, therefore, a great need for the church to assist government and non-government agencies in the care of the elderly. They are some poorest of the poor, pitied but often neglected. In them, the church sees the face of Christ and this recognition has to be translated into programs. Cognizant to these calls and challenges the Senate Spouses Foundation, Inc., and turned over to the Diocese of Malolos through the Bishop, His Excellency Rolando J.Tria Tirona, OCD, DD. On March 19, 2001, with the assistance of the Sisters of the Divine Shepherd, anchors their responses and action to the abandoned elderly issues and concern.
