Camaraderie at Blue Skies of Texas: It Means We’re Here for You Through Thick and Thin
There’s nothing quite like the power of community spirit. At Blue Skies of Texas in San Antonio, you will find that our rich community spirit is what makes this place so welcoming to older adults from all backgrounds—and it’s what gives us the resilience to overcome any challenge that comes our way.
Of course, this year has been full of challenges, but our community’s strength and the attitude of camaraderie that resonates throughout our neighborhoods have helped us tackle 2020 head-on. As we reflect on this year and look ahead to a brighter future, one thing will always remain: We’re here for each other, and here for you through it all.
Here for each other
Members of our community, whether they share a background of military service or not, have taken special care to stay connected. They’ve masked up, kept a safe distance and washed (and sanitized) their hands, all while continuing to craft special bonds with their neighbors and friends.
For example, you can see on our Facebook page how people here have enjoyed various activities safely and in ways that echo the service-focused attitude that goes along with the sense of camaraderie found here:
- Our “Seasoned Soles” walking group recently participated in a virtual “Wonder Woman Run” to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
- Earlier this fall, dozens of residents and staff members safely gathered to participate in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The event took on added meaning as it began outside Freedom House, our Alzheimer’s Care and Research Center.
- To support our heroic staff, residents purchased raffle tickets and gift baskets to raise money for our annual employee Halloween costume contest, which was a blast of a time in itself!
We’ve also recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of a pivotal moment from our history as Air Force Village, when in 1970 the first fourteen residents moved into this community and thus began our tradition of “taking care of our own.” Our mission is to provide a haven for every resident regardless of their background, should they ever need support, whether financial or physical.
Our not-for-profit status combined with the heritage of service at Blue Skies of Texas also simply draw people here who really care about supporting and uplifting others. And since 1970, members of our community have been here for each other, and they remain here for each other now.
