For over 48 years, Elder Care Services has been fulfilling our mission to improve the quality of life for seniors and their caregivers in the Big Bend.
Our comprehensive services provide community based, compassionate care for a broad spectrum of seniors. For active seniors, we provide an avenue to stay engaged in the community through volunteering placement. For families beginning the aging process, we are an advocate and trusted resource. For frail and homebound seniors, we continue to provide a variety of services that promote independence and safety while individuals age in place.Read more about our services to learn how we care for a spectrum of seniors in the Big Bend.

Our vision includes being the definitive source of information on aging issues and services, and acting as an advocate for seniors. Elder Care collaborates with local, state, and federal agencies, for-profit and non-profit organizations, local schools and universities, and foundations to find resources and solutions for unmet needs in our community.
In direct reflection of our vision, the Elder Care Services' logo is a log cabin quilt design that symbolizes our services. Just as carefully chosen pieces of fabric sewn together make a quilt, basics like a bath, hot meals, clean clothes, transportation, and companionship form a pattern of care for seniors. Through ECS, active seniors make up a vital component of our programs by helping us and others in our community meet the needs of our most frail and vulnerable seniors.
Each year, over 3,000 seniors and their families receive help from Elder Care Services.
