Senior Adult Master Plan

In 2009, the City Council approved the Senior Adult Master Plan, which has been recognized as a model statewide. As part of this plan, community focus group meetings are held quarterly to share concerns and ideas about our aging community. Please email Council on Aging or call 805-381-7362 for more information and next meeting date.

Senior of the Year: Recognizing our Volunteers

Nominations: January through March. Forms will be then available here.

Nominees must be: over 60 years of age and a Thousand Oaks/unincorporated area resident and volunteer for three of the past five years.

Each year the City's Council on Aging (COA) honors senior volunteers with an awards ceremony and social and recognizes a Senior of the Year. More than 1,200 senior adult volunteers contribute their time and energy to more than 80 non-profit agencies, schools and community organizations in the Thousand Oaks area. Senior adults donate approximately 275,000 volunteer hours annually, providing much-needed support to our community.
