CAREGIVERS is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, formed in 1984, and dedicated to promoting the health, well-being, dignity, and independence of frail, homebound elders through one-on-one relationships with trusted volunteers. CAREGIVERS is committed to providing services, offering employment and volunteer opportunities to all, without discriminating on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin or disability. Our program is focused on seniors 60 years and older, with more then 63% of them 80 years and older. This underserved, low-income population of seniors cannot afford the care they need for activities of daily living, and they live in fear of not being able to do their grocery shopping or make it to their medical appointments. They live alone, are socially isolated without familial support, and living with multiple chronic conditions and disabilities. CAREGIVERS alleviates the fears and loneliness of these seniors by providing FREE, direct in-home services such as housekeeping, personal care, transportation for shopping and medical appointments, and most importantly, companionship. We serve more then 500 elders throughout Ventura County, which includes the cities of Santa Paula, Oxnard, Ventura, Fillmore, Pt. Hueneme, and Camarillo. By providing our screened and trained volunteers, CAREGIVERS is able to help our advanced aged and infirm to “age in place” in the security of their own homes, avoiding premature placement into care facilities and institutions.
