For low income seniors, the elderly and and those with disabilities (as well as their caregivers) who need help or assistance, we suggest contacting the following agencies:
Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services at 1-855-937-2372 and talk to a trained professional. To learn about the services they offer, access this page, clicking on the section entitled "Help for People who are Older (60+) and Caregivers": www.dads.state.tx.us/services/
Contact your local Area Agency on Aging (AAAs). AAAs contract with local service providers to deliver many direct services, such as meals, transportation and in-home services. However, most agencies are direct providers of Information and Referral/Assistance, case management, benefits/health insurance counseling and family caregiver support programs. www.dads.state.tx.us/contact/aaa.cfm
2-1-1 Texas, a program of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, is committed to helping Texas citizens connect with the services they need. Whether by phone or internet, our goal is to present accurate, well-organized and easy-to-find information from state and local health and human services programs. We accomplish this through the work of our 25 Area Information Centers (AICs) across the state. 2-1-1 Texas is a free, anonymous social service hotline available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. www.211texas.org/
