Senior Planet members are an extremely diverse group of people 60 and over but all of us have these things in common:

  • We have a burning desire to improve our lives in the years we have left - to make friends, to make money, to make a difference on the issues we care about, to discover new pathways for our creative selves, be as healthy as we can be and have a fun time while doing it!
  • We’re optimistic about the future and our rightful place in it.
  • We’re curious and eager to learn how to use technology and other powerful tools to help us live better and achieve our dreams.
  • We’re committed to each other and to making Senior Planet a strong, positive, and effective force for producing social change.

Given the choice, most people want to stay in their homes. Sometimes, people need help to remain at home.

In-Home Personal Care Services are for older adults who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that cannot easily be provided by their families or friends.

When health issues prevent them from performing simple tasks, impair their mobility, or put their safety and well being at risk, their options may be limited. Some may move in with family members. Some go to nursing homes. Those who do not qualify for public assistance and cannot afford private care often face a serious struggle for independence. That is where Family Service Association steps in to lend a gentle hand.

Older adults who have the ability to remain independent in their own homes with the assistance of supportive services may receive up to 10 hours of direct service each week in the home for personal care and home assistance, including the following:

  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Light housekeeping,
  • Assistance with the daily activities associated with living at home, such as bathing, dressing and grooming, washing and combing hair.

A complete evaluation and assessment is conducted on the first home visit, with on-going supervision at least every 90-days. Follow up visits are scheduled to monitor client needs and to ensure continued appropriateness of services.

An excellent investment, the program can serve 100 clients for less than it would cost to care for 10 patients in an alternate care setting, for the same one-year period.

Services are offered on a sliding fee scale that is based on the client’s ability to pay.

Funding is provided by United Way, Client Fees, and Private Foundations and Corporations.

The Conjunto Heritage Taller recognizes the positive impact of music on our aging community and we foster “creative aging”, by providing music programming that supports and enriches adults across the aging spectrum! Annually, with the support of the Texas Commission on the Arts, we hold at least two free senior programs consisting of 8-week long introductory accordion classes, held at different San Antonio senior centers, taught by one of our master accordion instructors.

Primary outcomes of our senior programs can be seen among our students, who develop an understanding of the accordion or bajo sexto and eventually perform in the senior recital. We have observed that students gain self-confidence and pride when they master tunes they have worked hard to learn, and when they go on stage and receive a positive audience response.

Students participating in our senior programs exhibit positive results with added benefits of warding off depression and loneliness. CHT senior programs are facilitated in predominantly low-income, inner-city senior centers with the goal of positively serving our communities through creative aging!

Seniors Only.
