Juanita Beason is a Benefits Counselor for the Area Agency on Aging of East Texas.

The Area Agency on Aging of East Texas is part of a nationwide network coordinating supportive services for the elderly as mandated by the Older Americans Act of 1965 and its subsequent amendments.
The Area Agency on Aging of East Texas plans and contracts services for seniors throughout a 14-county region. With the Area Agency on Aging acting as an advocate, awareness of the needs of the elderly increases through services that assist the elderly and their families with options that promote independence, well-being and dignity.
The Area Agency on Aging of East Texas' programs are tailored to meet the social, nutritional, educational and logistical needs of residents age 60 years old and above in our region.


The Oil Patch TRTA School Employees unit was founded in 2016 and seeks to serve retirees in western Gregg, southern Upshur, and eastern Smith counties who are not members of another area unit. The best way to protect our health care or pension interests is to belong to the state TRTA group as well as a local association. Membership numbers are exceptionally important when reaching out to legislators on these issues.

Oil Patch meetings are generally held on the fourth (4th) Thursday most months of the academic year. at the Gladewater First United Methodist Church, 217 Quitman @ Ferry Street at 1:30pm.

Visitors, guests and potential members are always welcome at meetings.
