Residential care program
The Community Residential Care Program at the South Texas Veterans Health Care System offers Hill Country veterans who have difficulty in daily living a chance to live in a supervised, home-like f ■nnospncTc.
Social Worker Phil Grota manages the CRCP and is assisted in the administration of the Hill Country program by David Dougherty at the Kerrville Division. The CRCP serves approximately IOO veterans placed in 24 residences. Four of those homes are in the Kerrville and Comfort area
and offer IO vacancies for veterans to reside.
“We try' to match the veteran’s needs with a sponsor who can complement those needs with home environment and caregiving abilities,” Grota said. “As our veterans age, there is an increased need for this type pf structured living arrangement.” I
To get involved in the CRCP, sponsors agree to provide the veteran with room, board, laundry service, transportation to medical appointments, recreational activities and supervision because
of mental, or sometimes physical, limitations. The sponsor’s home is subject to strict inspection by the CRCP evaluation committee inspection team before they are approved.
Homes must have proper supervision of medication, sound electrical systems, efficient heating and air conditioning, cleanliness, proper lighting and ventilation plus food storage and preparation facilities.
Veterans in the program agree to pay the sponsor a minimum of $762 monthly. Costs vary depending on
the needs of the veterans. The money comes out of the veteran’s own funds, which generally are from a Veterans Administration pension, Social Security benefits or a combination of the two.
If a veteran can no longer live independently in the community and has no family or friends to care for him, he is a prospective candidate for the CRCP.
Veterans or their family members who are interested in discussing benefits of the CRCP may contact Dougherty at the Kerrville Division at 830-896-2020 ext. 2382.
CHS student council has full plate of activities
By CURTON FLUME
Special to the Heraki-ZeHung
Aa the Canyon High School Student Council waited in line to enter the Comal County Fair parade, spirit and excitement came over everyone on die float.
It was the student council’s time to show the community its spirit and how leaders of the school get involved.
Seven members of the student council rode on the flout: Clinton Flume, Ryan Frisbie, Amanda Smith, John Anderson, Kathleen Brock, Cherilyn Carlile and Zac Rosson. Lily Barucky was the student council sponsor. The night before the students painted signs and decorated the float the next morning. Barry Carlile provided the truck and trailer, and Nina Carlile and Carole Frisbie helped the council get prepared in the early morning hours. The parade was a huge success for the student council and the community.
With the fun and excitement of the parade passing, it was time to get down to business. On Tuesday, the District 18 board meeting took place at New Braunfels High School. Members from each school holding an executive office gathered to talk about the upcoming conventions and retreat. NBHS is the District 18 President and Brandyn Balmos it the presiding president.
The Canyon High School delegates were Rick Cantu, District 18 past president; and Clinton Flume, student council president. Betty Kyle was the sponsor for Canyon.
At the meeting, the fall convention was discussed, and Samuel Clemens will host it on Nov. 8. Tbe winter retreat date was set for Jan. IO and 11 in Wimberley, and Hays Consolidated will host die spring convention on April I, 1998, in the Civic Center. The meeting gave all the students a chance to meet each other and address all the issues of the district. The meeting was a great success.
On the home base of CHS, student council was planning the 15th Annual Lock-in. The Lock-In was to take place on Oct. 4. Students participated in games, team building exercises, an Olympics and self-development sessions. At the Look-In, students learned how to better themselves and how to get more involved in the council.
A wonderful parade, a successful District 18 Board Meeting and fabulous Lock-On are all the key ingredients th a happy and successful student council. CH S’s student council is working very hard and doing the best job possible to make better leaders out of its students. Canyon Student Council is right on track for a very productive year.
Some important upcoming events for CHS are the Red Ribbon Week, Candle Light Pep Rally and the Homecoming game and dance.
(Clinton Flume is the Canyon High School student council president.)
