HOTCOG’S Award Winning Area Agency on Aging!
4 Oct 2021
The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) of the Heart of Texas is helping the aging population in many ways and winning awards for doing so! The AAA serves residents of McLennan, Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, and Limestone Counties with access to social services providers, effectively screening and accessing individual needs, and advocating for the older person (age 60 and older) including family members and other caregivers.
The AAA was awarded the 2020 National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Impact Award for their fast-moving reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AAA purchased and delivered $100 of groceries to 800 families who could not afford or did not have access to food stores! AAA traditional services provided to the aging population include four core programs – (1) Benefits Counseling, (2) Care Coordination/Caregiver Support Coordination, (3) Healthy Education Program, and (4) Long Term Care Ombudsman.
