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 enjoy working with people and most enjoy jobs where you have one-on-one interaction with others. I enjoyed taking care of elder family members and would like to help others in this way. You like older adults and feel you can get along well with a variety of elders and i have alot of years in experience in the field I work with my mother before she passed

The friendliest neighborhood, everyone watches out for each other, if you need help ask a neighbor and they will come to the rescue.

The community I live in is age friendly. We are family oriented and retired families that help others by visiting and helping when there is a need that needs to be met
