Care about seniors? Join the Commission on Aging

There is currently one vacancy on the Commission on Aging.

The commission strives to attain a balanced geographic representation and applicants are being sought from all areas of the county, including South Lake Tahoe. Preference will be given to those 60 years and older.

The deadline for submitting applications is Feb. 28. For additional information and to obtain a membership application form contact Yasmin Hichborn, El Dorado County Area Agency on Aging, 3057A Briw Road, Placerville 95667; telephone (530) 642-4833.

Commissioners play a very important advisory role in the provision of services to El Dorado County seniors. The commission acts in an advisory capacity to both the Area Agency on Aging and the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors on matters concerning senior residents. The commission focuses its efforts on such issues as development of community centers in strategic areas of the county to ensure provision of accessible services to all senior residents, promotion of services that enable seniors to remain in their homes for as long as possible and identification and prevention of elder abuse.
