Comprehensive Services

The Area Agency on Aging of Texoma is responsible for the development and coordination of a comprehensive system of services for citizens over the age of 60 and for citizens with a disability residing in Cooke, Fannin, and Grayson Counties in North Texas. All services may now be reached by simply dialing 2-1-1.

Lifelong Independence

The overall goal of the programs for Older Texans is to promote lifelong independence, providing alternatives in long-term care options through a wide variety of services. All programs are funded in part by local contributions from individuals and businesses, foundations support, and funding received from the Older Americans Act and a variety of other federal grants.

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.

In Case of Emergency (ICE)

In Case of Emergency (ICE) - Who would you want contacted?

In Case of Emergency (ICE) is a program which enables first responders such as paramedics, firefighters and police, as well as hospital personnel, to contact the next of kin to obtain important medical or support information.

A person can list multiple emergency contacts as “ICE1”, “ICE2”, etc.

Don’t delay, do it now!
