Evidence-Based Intervention Programs
TCOG’s Area Agency on Aging offers free educational programs to the community on an annual basis. These programs include A Matter of Balance and Powerful Tools for Caregivers.
Partners in Education (P.I.E)
The Area Agency on Aging works in partnership with Wilson N Jones, Grayson, Cooke and Fannin County Hospice and Texas A&M AgriLife to provide educational awareness through a monthly Partners in Education forum (PIE). This education is critical for our Caregivers as it represents a needed support and tool not provided elsewhere.
