Caddo Council on Aging does this by serving as the Parish agency responsible for advancing the concerns and interests of older people and their caregivers, and by working with and through the Aging Services Network to promote the development of a comprehensive and coordinated system of home and community-based long-term care that is responsive to the needs and preferences of older people and their family caregivers.
