Commission on Aging


Purpose of the Commission:

The Commission on Aging is an advisory and advocacy body that provides recommendations to the County Board of Supervisors, and the Human Services Agency on the needs, priorities, and impact of current and proposed regulations on the County’s senior population. The Commission also acts as advocates for the well being of our seniors through direct contact with County Supervisors, writing letters to government representatives at all levels, by interacting with the legislative process in Sacramento, and interacting with the many non-governmental organizations throughout the County that serves our seniors.

Many Commissioners are also members of other community organizations. They may also have professional experience in serving the senior population. They bring the insights, concerns and priorities of these organizations to the collective awareness of the Commission. The deliberations of the Commission are also supported by the efforts of an analyst from the Aging Division of the Human Services Agency, who gathers data, arranges for input from other County Departments, oversees the preparation and distribution of correspondence, and many other services that facilitates the Commission’s work.

It is important to the people who rely on the Commission recommendations that they properly reflect the demographics (ethnicity, location, culture, etc.) of the entire County’s senior population. The Commission strongly encourages County residents who may be members of under represented populations or are from the County’s rural or small towns to attend our meetings, make their voices heard, and apply for Commission membership.
