As 2023 comes to a close with family gatherings and time off to relax and refresh, staff at the Camarillo Health Care District have been busy putting together a line-up of new classes and offerings in the new year.

You can look forward to new and exciting virtual reality classes that will take you to see the 7 Wonders of the World, go skydiving or attend a virtual entertainment district where you can watch concerts in 3D.

We have a dentist on site monthly to offer dental screenings, a doctor from Community Memorial Healthcare presenting on "The Aging Spine - Osteoporosis and Spinal Stenosis" from 2 to 3 p.m. on Jan. 23, and we are extending the "Elder Legal Answers Your Questions On ..." series through March and switching locations to our campus.

We're pleased to welcome back the Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program. They took a hiatus to help people with Medicare Open Enrollment, but are returning the first and third Thursday of the month to offer appointments between 9 a.m. and noon. HICAP registered counselors provide free, unbiased options counseling to Medicare beneficiaries. They can also provide help with billing problems, benefits screening, enrollment and Long-Term Care Insurance.

And we will begin offering a morning Yoga class in March with instructor Mikal Rogers.

To register for any of these classes or to make an appointment, call us at 805-388-1952.

Also, look in your mailbox for the next edition of Healthy Attitudes magazine if you live within our District boundaries in Camarillo and Somis. On the cover, we ask: "Why Not?" And we showcase local residents who said "Why not?" to joining our Walking Group, taking a social media class, trying virtual reality and working on improving their balance and cognition through our BALANCEfit program. If you want a sneak peek, you'll find it online by clicking here.

In the magazine, you'll also read about our Adult Day Center and how it benefits families in different ways. You'll meet Ajit, who attends our center to make friends and participate in activities. Also, Angela shares the story of her dad, who is living with vascular dementia, and how he utilizes the day center while she works.

We also highlight our Digital Bridge program in the magazine. Originally introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic to assist people with telehealth medical appointments, today seniors are using the program to stay digitally literate so they can use technology confidently, creatively and critically to meet the challenges of living and learning in a digital society. 

Lastly, we would like to express our appreciation for the opportunity to serve you and thank you for your positive feedback:

"Mariana was an excellent facilitator for SHARE. She was straightforward but presented the material with warmth and friendliness. She really helped us customize our SHARE plan to our personal needs and abilities. The program was very beneficial."  -SHARE client (SHARE helps people in early- to mid-stage dementia craft a care plan with their families.)
"All of you are making a difference. Many thanks to you."   - Tai Chi for Arthritis participant

Happy Holidays!
