Importance of Texas Long-Term Care Facilities Regulations.
If you have a family member in long-term care and you suspect a problem, discuss the matter with the administrator of the nursing home, assisted living facility or home health agency.
If you are aware of a specific act of abuse, neglect, or exploitation, you are required by law to report it.
From the headquarters in Austin to eligibility offices in the Rio Grande Valley to laboratories in the Panhandle, Health and Human Services employees are there to respond to the needs of Texans.
The professionals that staff health and human services agencies across the state are ready and willing to assist people who need services, contractors who provide them and anyone with questions about the services we provide. While the headquarters offices are located in Austin, there are offices across the state that serve Texans.
