Claimed city

Houston is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Texas and the fourth-most populous city in the United States. 

The Harris County Area Agency on Aging (HCAAA) is part of a nationwide network coordinating supportive services for the elderly as mandated by the Older Americans Act of 1965 and its subsequent amendments.

The HCAAA's programs are tailored to meet the social, nutritional, educational and logistical needs of all Harris County residents age 60 and above.

  1. Nutrition services include the home-delivered meal program for the homebound elderly and the congregate meal program at senior centers throughout Harris County. HCAAA offers in-home services, caregiver training and other supportive services.
  2. Personal Assistance: This service includes assistance with all tasks identified in Homemaker, plus activities related to the client's physical health. Assigned tasks and number of units per week are determined by the program supervisor.
