Senior Health Advisory Council

Phone: 409-938-2456

The Senior Health Advisory Council is a group of individuals and agency representatives who meet on a regular basis with a mission to:

“Provide a Link for Galveston County Senior Citizens
to Health and Social Services.”

This Council was formed as a way to address the Galveston County Health District's Strategic Health Plan Priority on Senior Health. The Council has identified two main priorities for 2004 - 2005:

Priority Area #1: Promote wellness, fitness, and prevention of health problems/diseases and enable seniors to live independently in their homes as long as possible.

  • A senior community needs assessment and
  • The linking of senior citizens to appropriate community services.

Priority Area #2: Improve the way we communicate with seniors and their caregivers, and make health care services affordable.


  • To provide a senior- friendly brochure that describes Galveston County Health District services. (Funding provided by a grant from the Mainland Cities United Way)
