ATW aims for improvements in 16 life areas, some of which focus on individual preparedness and others focus on social infrastructure (see page 8).
From the individual perspective, ATW addresses the areas of physical health, mental health, social engagement, spirituality, and financial and legal preparedness.
Social domains are quite varied, and include employment, protections, transportation, housing, volunteerism, community supports, and long-term services and supports, among others.
Taken together, these life areas empower aging Texans to take control of their lives, promote a positive aging experience, meet the challenge of obstacles with resources, and foster innovative solutions for generations of Texans to come.
