Guided by the vision that seniors and adults with disabilities should live in a supportive community with dignity and as much independence as possible, Family Eldercare provides essential services to seniors, adults with disabilities and caregivers.
Recognized experts in the field of aging, Family Eldercare is a non-profit that has been serving Central Texas since 1982. We want to ensure that all older adults receive the care they need to remain independent and living in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible. We support caregivers with services and education that allow them the opportunity to have balance in their lives and to maintain good health. Our rates are on a sliding fee scale based on the client’s income. Today, Family Eldercare provides a continuum of services on a sliding fee scale to more than 6,000 elders, people with disabilities and their caregivers annually in Travis, Williamson and Hays counties.
Our services are available in the home, assisted living communities, nursing homes or continuous care communities, and hospitals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are licensed by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services to provide Personal Assistant Services.
At the core of Family Eldercare's mission is the philosophy that a neighborhood is a great place to grow old. Family Eldercare carries out its mission through a variety of programs, which are designed to prevent abuse, neglect, self-neglect and financial exploitation of elders and adults with disabilities, prolong independent living in the least restrictive environment, and promote the health, well-being and dignity of elders, adults with disabilities and their caregivers.
