AGE of Central Texas, an organization that supports older adults and their caregivers, has purchased a parcel at 9400 Alice Mae Lane, Austin, for the site of its future South Center. Rob Faubion, a communications representative for AGE of Central Texas, said the organization is "still fundraising for the construction costs, with the hopes of breaking ground toward the end of this year."
According to Faubion, the new center will include an adult day health center licensed for 75 daily members; a computer lab with technology classes "for seniors, taught by seniors"; a health equipment lending program; an early memory-loss support program and more.
The South Center will join AGE of Central Texas' existing location at 3710 Cedar St., Austin. 512-600-9277. www.ageofcentraltx.org
