The Area Agency on Aging of Central Texas (AAACT), under the federal Older Americans Act, is administratively responsible for the development of a comprehensive and coordinated system of services for individuals 60 years of age and older.
Older persons, including their family caregivers, face a complicated array of choices and decisions about income security, public entitlements/benefits, health care, long term care insurance, advance planning, institutional care and housing options. Continual changes in public programs and fragmentation among health and human service agencies can further add confusion and frustration to the consumer.
