Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring together and leverage programs, resources, and organizations to protect and ensure the quality of life and independence of older Tennesseans and adults with disabilities.

Description

As the State Unit on Aging (SUA), the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability (TCAD) provides comprehensive and coordinated services that address multiple social and behavioral determinants of health relevant to older adults and adults with disabilities. Services provided by TCAD and its network address multiple population needs including, but not limited to, transportation assistance, home delivered meals, SNAP outreach, long-term care resident rights, Medicare insurance counseling services and social support for older adults. TCAD’s capacity to deliver these services is supported by a wide range of partnerships and collaborations within our community integrated health network, including nine Area Agencies on Aging and Disability (AAAD), the 120+ network of local senior centers and local nonprofit organizations. This network facilitates streamlined access to these services and supports through a statewide Information & Assistance line and the nine AAADs who serve as Single Points of Entry.
