The National Conciliation and Mediation Board-Cordillera Administrative Region initiated an outreach to the Rippling River Nursing Home, Irisan, Baguio City on October 3, 2018.

During the visit, Director Brenda Rose C. Odsey extended her appreciation to the health care providers claiming their job is exhausting having to deal with the challenges of attending patients with old age illnesses.  She then commended the seniors saying they are rich in experience and have lived a fulfilling life.

To help brighten their spirits, health kits were provided to them.

The ten elderlies showed vibrant energy and enthusiasm as they sang and mingle with the visiting staff.  So much stories were told and heard, experiences shared and learned from.  It was a heartwarming experience for the staff as it is a stage few people are chosen to go through.

Elderly Filipino Week is observed every first week of October by virtue of Proclamation No. 470 signed on Sept. 26, 1994, by then President Fidel Ramos.
