About AGE

AGE of Central Texas tackles the challenges of aging with expert solutions. We are dedicated to older adults and those who serve them. We provide five interrelated programs that serve people across the spectrum of aging: Adult Day Health Care, Caregiver Education and Resources, Early Memory Loss Support, the Health Equipment Lending Program, and peer-based computer classes for seniors.

Founded in 1986, by two visionary and dedicated leaders, Bert Kruger Smith and Willie Kocurek, AGE strives to be the leading source on aging in Central Texas.

We provide services through five interrelated programs:
  • Adult day health care centers in both Austin and in Round Rock provide a safe, secure, and stimulating environment for adults who need assistance with daily living skills.
  • AGE’s caregiver education and resources offers one-on-one counseling, information and referral, as well as educational events and support groups, for people who provide care to an aging or disabled adult.
  • Early memory loss support offers an early intervention program for those with memory loss, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease; offering strategies, activities and support at no charge for people in the early stages of memory impairment and their caregivers.
  • AGE’s health equipment lending provides durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, shower benches, canes, and other assistive devices to those in need at no cost.
  • Peer-based computer classes provide basic computer training and coaching to older adults interested in finding out how technology can enhance their lives. Classes are taught by volunteer instructors in an on-site lab for very low cost on subjects ranging from basic skills to advanced photo and video editing.

  2. So happy to find this site.
    We are not dealing with Alzheimer’s or dementia at this stage, but we are working with my husband’s mother on some physical challenges – and she cares for our young son. It’s nice to have a site with good and current resources.
    Thanks a bunch!

  3. Hello,

    My name is Joseph Collins and I represent NursingHomeAbuseCenter.org.

    Our website is an informational resource created to help the elderly and their loved ones who are concerned about nursing home abuse. Our site covers everything from signs of nursing home abuse to what steps to take if you suspect abuse. We also provide additional helpful information such as how to go about selecting and paying for a good nursing home.

    We think our site would be a very useful resource for your site visitors and would be honored if you would place a link to our site on your website.

    All we need for our link is “Nursing Home Abuse” linked to http://www.nursinghomeabusecenter.org. The link should look like this: Nursing Home Abuse (but, of course, it should be hyperlinked, made clickable)

    Please let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.

  4. Hello,

    I wanted to drop you a line and compliment you on your website and blog. Nice layout, good tips, and an overall great resource on senior health and quality of life.

    I currently work for a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility and we are interested in advertising on your site because we think it would be a great fit for us.

    Please let me know if this is possible.

    Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.

  5. Hello! My name is Lisa Sanguinet and I work for a wonderful company called CareLinx. (www.carelinx.com)

    I wanted to share with you our website. I think it could be a very helpful resource for your readers. We help families find in home care for their loved ones at an affordable price. We help connect caregivers to care seekers. I would love it if you would look at our website and see if we are a good fit for your blog. We empower families to hire, screen and manage care for a loved one. We are currently saving on average $10k a year for families and we require that our caregivers are screened and have background checks. We also provide insurance and bonding. We recently won the consumer vote at the AARP conference in September 2012.

    I am here to answer any questions you may have. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you.
