San Antonio, TX - October 30, 2015 - Anniversary announcement

The City’s newest and largest senior center was unveiled Oct 30, 2105 at a grand opening celebration hosted by District 10 Councilman, Mike Gallagher. Mayor Ivy R. Taylor, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, and former District 10 Councilmen Carlton Soules and John Clamp joined Councilman Gallagher, the Department of Human Services (DHS), local officials, and hundreds of area seniors to celebrate the opening of the 26,743 square foot, state-of-the -art facility. The event included a Time Capsule Ceremony to preserve this historic moment in time. The capsule, enclosed in a brick wall by the center entrance, holds commemorative items from area seniors and elected officials. The new Northeast Senior Center is the first City of San Antonio Senior Center built from the ground up specifically to meet the needs of seniors. The center, located at 4135 Thousand Oaks, was designed with input from seniors and the community. The Northeast Senior Center is managed by the Department of Human Services and includes:
• Facility: Large Dinning & Event Area, 250 Parking Spaces, Computer Room, Reading Room with Digital Library Kiosk, Arts and Dance Rooms, Fitness Center, and Game Room
• Mosaic tile wall entitled, “Songbirds of San Antonio,” by artist Dixie Friend Gay
• Scheduled Activities: Exercise, Art, Dance, Computer and AARP Safety Classes
• Fitness Equipment: Treadmills, Elliptical Machines, Bicycles, Workout Stations and Free Weights
• Recreation: Pool Tables, Ping Pong Table, and Electronic Bingo Board
• Partners: WellMed Health, SA Food Bank - Project HOPE Senior Commodities Distribution, Bihl Haus Senior Arts, Oasis Computer Instruction, YMCA Senior Fitness, and Dance Umbrella Programs

“We are honored and delighted to have the new Northeast Senior Center open today, a year after the groundbreaking ceremony. This center is a culmination of local involvement and community leadership who shared a vision to care for senior citizens in the area. From the beautiful mosaic by Dixie Friend Gay to the fully-equipped gym, our seniors now have a center to be proud of. This center was built by the community, for the community, and will be here when our children today are the seniors of tomorrow,” Councilman Mike Gallagher, District 10 remarked.

“The opening of this center reflects the City’s commitment to improve the quality of life for seniors in our community. It includes amenities and activities designed by seniors to meet the needs of seniors,” said Melody Woosley, DHS Director.

The senior center was funded with $10 million from the voter-approved 2012-2017 Bond Program. The project was managed by Transportation & Capital Improvements. The consultant for the project was RVK Architects and the contractor was Guido Brothers Construction. The public art installation was managed by the Department for Culture and Creative Development.

Adults, ages 60 and older, interested in attending the senior center can visit the center Monday – Friday during operating hours of 7:00 am – 4:00pm or call 210.207.4590.

SENIOR COMPANION PROGRAM

Seniors…Helping Seniors – A program of Christian Senior Services What is the Senior Companion Program? Active senior adults are matched one-on-one with frail homebound elderly to provide companionship and reduce isolation or provide respite to caregivers.

Do you know anyone who?
Is at least 55 years old, and might enjoy providing friendship on a regularly scheduled basis (at least 15 hours per week) to a disabled adult living in their area.
Is an older adult who is homebound and isolated and might benefit from 4 hours per day of companionship and minor assistance for 2-3 days a week.
Is a caregiver for an older adult and needs consistent days and times to have a break each week to attend to their own or family needs.

Is your church looking for ways for their church family to expand local mission efforts?
Members can volunteer a few hours per week to provide clerical and office support.
Perhaps someone would like to sponsor a meal for a special recognition event, or provide music for a party, or have the children make favors for an event.
Maybe a professional would like to teach an in-service training for our volunteers.
Sponsor a special thank-you gift for our Senior Companion volunteers (such as a Thanksgiving or Easter basket).
