Ventura, California is a beautiful coastal city northwest of Los Angeles. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Ventura has a population of 846,000, of which 16.2% are seniors. This coastal community offers a great balance between city amenities and a friendly small-town vibe. The scenic harbor and historic downtown areas are full of things for active seniors to enjoy, and Grant Park offers some wonderful views. Seniors can access good health care in the city too. The Community Memorial Hospital is rated high-performing in four different procedures.

Ventura is well-served by home health care providers. The average monthly cost of home health care is $5,339 per month, and homemaker services are similarly priced. This is several hundred dollars more than the national average fees of $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care, but it’s $190 per month lower than the average for the state of California.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Ventura, so data for the closest city, Oxnard, was used.

Ventura Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Ventura:

Senior Nutrition Program

Address: Ventura County Area Agency on Aging, 646 County Square Drive, Suite 100, Ventura, CA 93003
Phone Number: (805) 477-7300

The Area Agency on Aging runs a Senior Nutrition Program providing those in need with home-delivered meals based on a menu approved by a registered dietitian. Each meal covers one-third or more of the daily recommended allowance of nutrients for seniors, and there are meals suited for diabetic or low-sodium diets. The program is donation-based, but eligible seniors who cannot afford to contribute may still receive meals.

California Weatherization Assistance Program

Phone Number: (866) 675-6623

The Department of Energy operates a Weatherization Assistance Program for California residents, giving priority to those aged 60 and over. Seniors in receipt of SSI or TANF are automatically eligible for the program. The Weatherization Assistance Program reduces the heating and cooling costs of homes by helping families improve the energy efficiency of their property.

ElderHelp – In-Home Services

Phone Number: (805) 477-7300

The ElderHelp Program delivers in-home services, including chores, personal care, food boxes and basic home repairs, for frail seniors. Eligible seniors may also receive a personal security device. This program is run by the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging.

Property Tax Exemptions

Address: Ventura County Assessor’s Office, 800 South Victoria Avenue, Ventura, CA 93009-1270
Phone Number: (805) 645-1305

Ventura residents aged 55 and over may be eligible for a variety of property tax exemptions, including the option to defer payment of property taxes on their home under the Property Tax Postponement bill. Seniors can also receive a discount on their property taxes and an appraisal exclusion if they purchase a new home. Seniors can contact their local county assessor for more information about these options.

Senior Concerns

Address: 401 Hodencamp Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360-5467
Phone Number: (805) 497-0189

This nonprofit organization offers support for seniors at various stages of their lives. Services include a Meals on Wheels program, adult day care, caregiver support, financial and legal advice and wraparound services for homebound seniors. The organization relies on volunteers and donations, and fees are based on a sliding scale. 

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
