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.

Houston is extremely hot for 6 months each year, making it difficult even for younger people to tolerate. This can be very challenging for elders, especially if they are lower income with few resources and without air conditioning. Also it floods with hurricanes and just very heavy rains from tropical depressions, also making this very difficult for seniors. Then it can be very difficult to get around in the city for it's sprawling and public transportation is lacking. There are community centers, though I don't frankly know much about them.
