To enable aging and disabled Texans to live dignified, independent, and productive lives in a safe living environment through an accessible, locally based, comprehensive and coordinated continuum of services and opportunities; to provide appropriate services and supports based on individual needs ranging from in-home and community based services for the aging individuals and people with disabilities who request assistance in maintaining their independence and increasing their quality of life, to institutional services for those who require that level of support, seeking to ensure health and safety and to maintain maximum independence for the individual while providing the services and supports required.
