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 August and December. Meetings are open to anyone interested in senior issues. The CCOA seeks and values your input. See below for meeting time and location.
The Senior Resource Guide provides information regarding agencies, organizations and businesses providing senior services. This Guide contains links that will take you directly to provider websites for additional information regarding the provider’s services.
You may contact the CCOA via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling City Hall at (805) 388-5315.

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.
