Silver Solutions: 2023 Senior Resource Fair

Texas Public Radio is proud to partner with Jewish Family Service of San Antonio for this year's Silver Solutions, a free community event spotlighting programs and services provided by institutions that support San Antonio seniors and their caregivers. This year's event will be at the Barshop Jewish Community Center, 12500 NW Military Drive, on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. 

Silver Solutions is a resource fair that helps seniors gather information pertaining to their health, their living resources, their faculties, their passions and their independence. As members of our associated organizations, as children of seniors, we want to help elders in our community age in place and live life to its fullest!  Also, those of us who are working with our family members to help them research their options are seeing the need to put a plan together for ourselves.
