The Area Agency on Aging of the Capital Area (AAACAP), a division within the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG), provides quality services to support the health, safety, and well-being of older individuals in the 10-county Capital Area. This is accomplished through a variety of programs and activities.
AAACAP plans, develops and provides a coordinated system of services designed to promote independence for persons 60 years of age and older with a primary focus on frail, rural and low-income minority individuals. This mission is mandated through the Older American's Act of 1965, as amended (OAA), and supported by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS).
AAACAP continues to contract with other agencies to ensure the availability of services such as transportation, nutrition, homemaker and senior center operations. In addition, it directly provides, through the system of Access and Assistance program, Benefits Counseling, Long-term care and Assisted Living Facilities Ombudsman services, Care Coordination and Information, Referral and Assistance services. The area agency also provides services to caregivers under the National Family Caregiver Support Program.
Partially funded by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services, our services are provided without cost to residents throughout the 10-county CAPCOG region.
