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.

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.

Make lots more copies of this organization all across the country instead of just one.

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.

stay as excellent as it has been.

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 could only wish they would recieve more grants to conduct more health promotion services for seniors.

Senior Concerns exemplifies not only Senior Day Care but also the implementation of progressive projects which support the entire surrounding senior community and their families. Senior Concerns has big city efficiencies married with small town intimacies as a result of a genuine heart-felt operation style.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Two well-run fund raisers, passionate staff, great community outreach.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing. They are the only game in town but you wouldn't know it based upon their drive for success.

I have seen first hand the great work Senior Concerns provides our community. We have several clients who benefit from the various services offered by Senior Concerns. There are a lot of non-profit organizations that need our support but not many who deserve it more than Senior Concerns. Thanks for all you do!

I have been referring to Senior Concerns for over 11 years. One of the challenges of a senior care professional is in finding quality organizations to refer families and clients to. Senior Concerns provides a consistent, loving and professional environment for the participants of their Adult Day program and serves the community in many varied ways.The directors and staff are dedicated to a high level of service, care, innovation and community outreach and education.We are fortunate to have such an upstanding and outstanding organization in the community. The advocacy for older adults is another benefit that they offer to the community and the work that the advocates do makes such a difference in the quality of life of those they serve.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing the relief and benefit families and individuals receive from the support of the staff and programs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Simply figure out a way to get them more grant money/ donations, so they can meet their goals with ease.

I came across Senior Concerns 4 years ago when a patient of ours was utilizing the services they offer. I was so impressed with the empathy that the staff had for their clients. I have valued our relationship ever since. In addition to this, the expertise and commitment to the SC cause is felt by all who enter the facility. One time they helped us when we had difficulty in transferring our agitated patient to enter our vehicle. The director herself came to assist us and calmed and coaxed our patient. One can see that the staff continually strives to better serve their community. I highly recommend this NP for a rating that exceeds 5 stars.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

especially in seeing the results from the patients we share in their demeanor and the relief and happiness that overcomes the patient's families.

Thus far I do not see any needed areas of improvement although I do know that inside all organizations, there are values that should be set and met. I encourage them to keep moving forward as they have been and if they follow their value system, then success will follow.

What is unique about this organization?

There does not seem to be any visible issues that one could see. Of course most or all organizations have problems or issues. If SC has issues or problems they face, they do not allow them to spill over into the realm of the families they serve, the agencies they work with and the public. It seems as though they know how to deal with issues, make changes and solve problems in a positive manner unlike many groups.
