 PHOTO CAPTIONS:  The Seniors Day at SM City San Jose Del Monte is a pioneer event that fulfils the mall’s commitment to serve the elderly and the community. At least 2,400 senior citizens attended the first Seniors Day at SM City San Jose Del Monte. Beginning this July, a Senior Citizens’ Booth will be set up at the second floor of SM City San Jose Del Monte every Tuesday, and it will serve as a satellite office for the city’s Office of Senior Citizens Affairs where members can perform transactions such as new member registration and claiming of benefits booklet. Some of the activities conducted on Senior Citizens Day is a mass Tai Chi exercise led by QiGong, a group of San Jose Del Monte senior citizens practicing the ancient oriental art. “Age is just a number” is what they say. Various senior citizen dance groups performed on Senior Citizens Day at SM City San Jose Del Monte drawing cheers and lauds from the crowd.


At least 2,400 senior citizens gathered for the first Senior Citizens’ Day at SM City San Jose Del Monte on June 21. Members of various senior citizen associations from all 59 barangays of San Jose Del Monte City came to witness the pioneering activity, which demonstrated SM Supermalls’ commitment to serve its community, especially the elderly.

In a speech read by SM City San Jose Del Monte’s Human Resources Manager Ms. Mary Crizabelle Alberto on behalf of Mall Manager Arch. Dang Estrella, she quoted former US President Ronald Reagan saying: “For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older—places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity.”

This message lifted from former President Reagan’s speech during the 1988 proclamation of August 21 as National Senior Citizens Day in America continues to inspire SM City San Jose Del Monte today in developing programs that encourage senior citizens to become active, engaged, and sociable members of society.

The monthly and quarterly activities at the mall would focus on various themes. Among them are the “Seniors Movement” where health and exercise activities like the Mall Walking Habit will be advanced; the “Seniors’ Forum,” which will educate senior citizens about their benefits and privileges under the Expanded Senior Citizens Act; the “Oldies But Techies” where they can learn about social media and computer technology; the “Oldietorium” where they get to share their personal stories with the youth through showcasing vintage possessions; and the “Elderpreneurship and Livelihood” activities, which could help get them started with small business opportunities.

One of the early initiatives of SM City San Jose Del Monte for senior citizens is the Senior Citizens Booth at the second floor near SM Cinema. It will be open every Tuesday beginning this July and will function as a satellite members’ assistance service center of the city’s Office of Senior Citizens’ Affairs./// sm city sjdmc
