Area Agency on Aging

Advisory Council

The Area Agency on Aging Advisory council was established by the Planning Commission to assist AAA of the Panhandle in managing the provision of social services under the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended. The council’s primary responsibility is to assist the AAA of the Panhandle in the development, implementation, review, and update of a comprehensive area plan to serve the elderly of the Texas Panhandle.

The members also help educate seniors on services provided and to promote public awareness on senior issues. The council’s mission is to serve as a link between the local communities and AAAP to communicate the needs, the interest and concerns of seniors and to act as an advocate to recognize, communicate, and promote the needs, interests, and rights of the elderly, their families, and caregivers.
