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.
Buena Vista Hospice
We have been referring seniors and their families to Senior Concerns for o ver 14 years. We know they will take care of and help the families we send there for help. They are a great asset to the Conejo Valley and surrounding areas.
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.
Conejo Valley Senior Concerns is a GREAT place! They are so dedicated to serving the senior community and especially frail and special-need seniors, caregivers and families. They provide quality programs, appropriate resources and educational outreach. Ventura County is lucky to have them!
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 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 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.
Senior Concerns offers a myriad of services to the senior---one of which is a day class. The adult day class allows seniors who maybe otherwise isolated at home, to interact with others. The class involves the seniors in music, current events, arts & crafts, exercise and many other activities. This program is a great resource for the people of Conejo Valley.--Barrie G from Livingston Memorial Visiting Nurse Association
Senior Concerns is the 411 for seniors or their families. Call them.... no matter the question. Starting as a grass-roots organization with volunteers delivering meals to isolated home-bound seniors and has evolved from meeting that basic need to a professional organization still filled with volunteers able to answer and meet any need a senior or their families might present. Through the generosity of the community, businesses and government grants services are offered either without fees or based on ability to pay. No one has ever been turned away. AND more importantly it still is filled with compassion and concern.
I am a physician in Kaiser Permanente with a medical office around the corner of the Senior Concerns center. In our medical facility is a Geriatric assessment clinic that provides care for the elderly with dementia problems or physical limitations that require high level care as outpatients. Senior Concerns is so helpful for our patients with these illnesses. In the Senior Concerns day care, staff and volunteers provide activities that are both fun and stimulating for these seniors to attempt to maintain their mental faculties as much as possible. This also serves the families of these elderly as respite for the constant caregiving that otherwise would totally consume their lives.
Senior concerns also provides the community with Meals on Wheels to deliver meals to those unfortunate seniors that may otherwise not be able to get good nutritional meals.
I have been so impressed with Senior Concerns that I now serve on the Board of the organization. I feel it is a shining example of what a community charity organization should be. Anyone interested in reading more about the nature of their services should go to their website and be impressed.
I work in the Senior Community; all of my clients are over 65. I have recommended Senior Concerns to some of my clients and friends. They have provided excellent care at the Adult Day Care Center, good counseling thru the Advocacy Program and nutritious food thru Meals on Wheels
