 Council on Aging




Camarillo Council on Aging Recognizing that seniors are a significant and vital segment of the City’s population, the Camarillo City Council formed the Camarillo Council on Aging (CCOA). The CCOA is an advisory body whose purpose is to provide a mechanism for the senior community to make recommendations regarding matters of concern to the City Council, the Ventura
County Area Agency on Aging, and other appropriate organizations and agencies.

The CCOA meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month, except in December. Meetings are open to anyone interested in senior issues. The CCOA seeks and values your input. See Agenda below for meeting time and location.

A New Transportation Option for Seniors - Ventura County Catch-A-Ride

Ventura County residents age 65 or older will soon have an opportunity to participate in a Mileage Reimbursement Program for older adults (65+) who are driven by others or who provide assistance driving older adults to doctor appointments, shopping and personal errands. The Ventura County Transportation Commission awarded a two-year contract to Camarillo based Mobility Management Partners for the development and management of this program as an additional mobility option for Ventura County older adults. See press release for more information (http://mobilitymp.net/mmp/catcharide/ventura-county-catch-a-ride/) or go to (www.mobilitymp.org.)

Help Us to Help You

The CCOA, in partnership with the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging (VC-AAA), is conducting a countywide survey to collect data on current senior services and future needs. The results of the survey will be broken down by zip code allowing CCOA to analyze the data specific to the Camarillo area. Then, along with its local partners—the City Council, Camarillo Health Care District, and Pleasant Valley Recreation and Parks District— the CCOA will strategize about how best to meet senior needs. If you’re 60 years old or older, we want to hear from you. Please complete the survey online at (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VCAAACommunitySurvey).
