"Our senior companionship prgram is a very essential program in not only in our senior properties, but also for seniors in family properties," said Juan Arroyo, Vice President of PSCDC. "It is an effort on our part to provide one-on-one grief support, companionship, resources, and more on a case management level. The service is quite popular, especially within our senior communities."

"Seniors love to get together and socialize, dance, and celebrate," said Luz Vallejo, PSCDC's Imperial Valley Director of Services. "It's always rewarding to see them enjoying themselves."

For Layla Perez, Villa de las Flores' PSCDC coordinator, the food brought to the potluck was the best part of the Mother's Day celebrations. "My favorite part of our celebration was all of the homemade delicious Mexican food dishes, and of course seeing my residents happy and dancing which they love to do at any celebration we have."

With Father's Day around the corner, the Imperial Valley PSCDC staff are preparing a special day to commemorate fathers!
