Seniors Sought for SAGE Program

haltom city senior center sage programThe Seniors Assisting in Geriatric Education (SAGE) Program at University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) and Texas Christian University (TCU) pairs students in medical fields with active adults, 60 years of age and older, providing an opportunity for future healthcare providers to learn more about communicating with older adults by practicing basic clinical skills in taking medical histories, interviewing, conducting physical exams, taking medication & cognitive assessments, and advising on nutrition. Students will not give medical advice.

How SAGE Works

Student teams consisting of 3-4 students will be paired with an adult 60 years of age or older in the Fort Worth Area. The teams will contact the senior and schedule visits six times over a two year period. The visits last between 1 to 1.5 hours and include the students taking the seniors vital signs. A free Vial Life is provided for each senior participating in the program. Senior volunteers will have the opportunity to positively influence the ability of these future providers to care for seniors in a sensitive and compassionate way. We are constantly in need of new volunteer seniors to participate in the program. Currently, we have over 1300 health care profession students participating in the program, which means we need over 600 seniors to participate in the program at all times.

If you would like to sign up for this program contact Yolanda Lane, Academic Coordinator for SAGE, at 817-735-0289. A copy of the consent form, with additional information, can be downloaded here.

Pet Food Bank Serves Senior Pet Owners

http://www.dontforgettofeedme.org/

haltom city senior center home not aloneThe Haltom Senior Center works through the Don't Forget to Feed Me Food Bank to assist resident seniors in providing pet food for their dog or cat. This pet food bank was started in 2008 and has since collected and distributed nearly 3,000,000 pet meals to deserving pet owners right here in Tarrant County.

In late 2014, a pilot program called Home, Not Alone was started. This program, working through Senior Citizen Services of Greater Tarrant County, offers pet food to participants at area senior centers twice a month. The Haltom City Senior Center was one of our first locations and served as a pilot program. The program has since expanded to 10 area centers.

Food bank volunteers bag and sort pet food for the "Home, Not Alone" program, and it is delivered straight to the centers. There are no requirements beyond being a participant at the center. Participants may receive dog food, cat food, or both. Each participant receives the same amount of pet food no matter how many pets they have, or how big those pets are.

The "Home, Not Alone" program is supported by grants from the Rees-Jones Foundation and the Helen D and R.E. Wallace Foundation at The Community Foundation of North Texas, as well as by many private individuals. Since the pilot in 2014, "Home, Not Alone" has delivered nearly 30,000 pounds of pet food through senior centers in Tarrant County, helping our seniors keep their animals with them at home and helping seniors use their limited incomes on other needs.

Currently, 100 seniors participate at the Haltom City Senior Center. Haltom Senior Center volunteer Rodney Greenlee has become one of our most faithful and enthusiastic volunteers. Rodney loves delivering pet food to his friends at the center.

If you would like more information about this program or would like to see about volunteering/donating visit their website. If you would like to get on the pet food distribution list, call the HC Senior Center at 817-834-8021.
