A Caregiver’s Toolkit

With input from family caregivers, the SALSA (Successful Living and Aging in San Antonio) Caregiver and Socialization Workgroup, of which Bihl Haus Arts is a member, created a dynamic toolkit for caregivers. This toolkit offers resources to those spouses, family, and significant others who provide care for their loved ones. The success of most care plans—from hospital discharge to everyday care in the home—often rests on the shoulders of the family caregiver. We hope this toolkit assists new or experienced home-based caregivers to understand their role and provides information about essential support for the challenges caregivers may face.

🎨 ART OFF FRED: Neighbor and artist, Kim Bishop is the creative force behind the latest D7 mural off Fred Road at the Jefferson Bodega. "In this painting I used my mother's portrait as a portrait to represent all mothers. Surrounded by roses, the flower of the mother and district 7. Behind her I stamped the words “I Am Here” to remind people that we share this space with everyone in our community. The notion that we should sacrifice our parents and grandparents for the economy is unacceptable. Vaccinate." - Kim Bishop. Beautiful work, Kim! We urge our friends and neighbors to check it out this weekend. ... See MoreSee Less
