Conejo Valley Senior Concerns
August 10, 2011

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.
