Silver Solutions 2017 Senior Resource Fair

Feb 21, 2016

Texas Public Radio's 7th annual Silver Solutions is a free community event spotlighting programs and services provided by institutions that support San Antonio seniors and their caregivers. This year's event will take place on Thursday, May 25 from 10am-3pm at TriPoint, 3233 N. St. Mary's at Hwy 281 South.  

A healthy diet is good for everyone. But as people get older, cooking nutritious food can become difficult and sometimes physically impossible. A pot of soup can be too heavy to lift. And there's all that time standing on your feet. It's one of the reasons that people move into assisted living facilities.

But a company called Chefs for Seniors has an alternative: They send professional cooks into seniors' homes. In a couple of hours they can whip up meals for the week.

This week, city leaders got together with residents in District 2, to celebrate the expansion of a senior center on the east side of town. The center, located on W.W. White Road near Rigsby, has been open for a few years. But it had outgrown its location very quickly, and has now also taken over the office next door.
