Guam - The Department of Public Health's Adult Protective Services is working with island mayor's to keep senior citizen centers operating. Public Health's Art San Agustin says the agency is strengthening its relationship with the mayors, and hoping to come up with solutions to overcome last year's major spending cut.
"It would benefit the community many times over, we are talking about the seniors in our community who go to these centers, also these constituents are from the respective villages of these mayors and it would help them and their family to continue to remain integrated in the community," he said.
Public Health last October made the $800,000 cut to the senior citizens services. San Agustin hopes the partnership will get the twelve senior centers as well as the two adult daycares back on its feet financially.
