Description

The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) is the designated State Agency on Aging and is required to submit a state plan on aging to the Administration for Community Living. Also, DADS is the operating agency for most of the Medicaid waiver programs for older individuals and individuals with disabilities. DADS was created to administer long-term services and supports for older Texans and individuals with disabilities. In the effort to provide comprehensive and coordinated services and consumer choice, DADS vision, mission and strategic goals support the Administration on Community Living (ACL) goals. For each of the ACL state plan focus areas, this plan details the interrelated activities supporting a responsive, consumer-directed long-term services system that supports older individuals needing services in the community. This plan outlines services and programs related to each of the four ACL goals and it describes how the state goals, objectives and strategies support those goals.
