I made an appointment to see Betty Berry and she and another staffer addressed all my concerns about signing up for Medicare. I was very confused and they made it very simple for me to make a decision. I have also visited the Senior Concerns Thrift Store and was pleased with the selection and the prices. I have been made aware of all their other services and feel alot more confident about having a place to get help if I need it.

A fellow docent at the Ronald Reagan Library suggsted speaking with Betty Berry. So we made an appointment & did so.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

Made the process into Medicare & it's very confusing 'options' considerably easier. This was our first experience with Conejo Valley Senior Concerns, most likely it will not be our last. Thank you, very much Ladies

I love Senior Concerns! They are wonderful people. I own and manage a medical hospice in Westlake Village and I see all the good they do for the seniors and their adult children in the Conejo Valley. Affordable day care, senior counseling, meals on wheels to the home bound! it goes on and on. we are a better community because of the work they do.

I came to know this facility and its staff thru volunteering with Meals on Wheels, for which the cafeteria at the Senior Concerns facility on Hodenkamp in Thousand Oaks provides a large measure of the food and packaging as well as management of the program.

I had occasion to be in and out, various times of the day and days of the week and always found it a very positive and pleasing environment ... bright and light, looking and smelling clean, and relative to the elderly guests, always communicating, entertaining.. being friendly. Treatment I know I want for my loved ones.

I also have some experience with Senior Concerns as a major proponent of elder and frail awareness and care within our community.

The leadership of Senior Concerns is deeply involved in teaming with many other non-profits, governmental agencies, and local business and organizational leaders, offering the full power of Sr. Concerns, to plan for the future and sustain Thousand Oaks as an 'elder friendly' community.

This organization is meaningful to our community and its residents in many, many ways and is indeed one of many linchpins between people and a quality life.

Each time I walk in the door, I am impressed with how friendly, helpful and loving the staff is at the Conejo Valley Senior Concerns. The people attending the adult day care program are engaged and smiling and you can see how they light up with the personalized attention they receive from the staff. We are so lucky to have such a quality place in Thousand Oaks.

The key to success for any organization is the people who make the program happen. It has been my pleasure to interact with the staff, serve on the program committee, and refer my clients to Senior Concerns for their adult day program, care consultation, educational programs, and advocacy for many years. The staff members are professional, competent, compassionate, and very knowledgeable about elder care and dementia care.

The Conejo Valley Senior Concerns serves several needs of seniors in Eastern Ventura County. They not only have a terrific loving client centered adult care service but reach out with various services to the greater senior commuity in Ventura County. Their Senior Advocate writes a terrific senior issues column in the Ventura County Star that is read by thousands of seniors. She also conducts numerous presentations on a wide range of senior issues including very timely presentations on Medicare and related health care issues.
They also work with other organizations to offer the cutting edge evidence based self management program called "Healthier Living: Managing Ongoing Health Issues". This valuable No-cost to the participant 6 week series helps seniors to gain control of their chronic health condition and improve their health.
What a wonderul organization with a serving mission that is both centered in providing the very best adult day care but also recognize the importance of outreach to the larger senior community.

I live far away from my aging parents, who are currently living in Simi Valley in their own home. I have met with the Senior Concerns social worker on numerous occasions, when I have traveled to visit my parents. My 89-year old mother has met with her as well. Senior Concerns has helped us facilitate care and services so my parents can continue to safely live at home and receive the necessary support to help them be as independent as possible. The responsiveness and practicality of the visits has been exceptional ---I don't know what I would do without them. Conejo Valley is VERY lucky to have this service and our elders certainly deserve it! I am very thankful for what they do.

The only change I would make is to have these services available more often as there are so many people in need.
