Texas Gov. Rick Perry issued an executive order creating the Aging Texas Well Advisory Committee and Action Plan. The order, which was issued in April 2005, formalizes the Aging Texas Well Initiative and asks the department to continue its work to identify and discuss aging policy issues, guide state government readiness, and promote increased community preparedness for an aging Texas population.
Under the executive order, an advisory committee is to be formed to advise the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) and to make recommendations to state leadership on implementation of the Aging Texas Well Initiative. HHSC creates and disseminates a comprehensive and effective working plan to identify and discuss aging policy issues, guides state government readiness and promotes increased community preparedness for an aging Texas.
HHSC also leads a planning effort to ensure the readiness of all Texas state agencies to serve an aging population by identifying issues, current initiatives, and future needs.
