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.

I do not know if the diversity of Houston is somehow making the city more acceptant and friendly of differences.

All of the neighbors seems very nice. It is a nice Neighborhood. Stores, Education, Care, and work are conveniently close by.

This neighborhood is more of younger people such as doctors, artists, musicians, dog lovers. It's also not really a family community. Most people I've met live alone or with a pet! The neighborhood is small and closed off away from downtown.

The Westchase area is very diverse in people and culture. There's people from all walks of life being represented here. Very age friendly with around the clock public transportation and hospitals. Westchase District is a great place to be.

There are lots of age friendly places and activities to do.
