Meals on Wheels

Location 150 Via Merida, Westlake Village, CA

The Senior Concerns’ Meals On Wheels program ensures homebound seniors get to eat nutritious, freshly prepared meals by delivering meals to their doorstep. More than 85 community volunteers bring close to 37,000 nutritionally balanced hot lunches and light meals to seniors in Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park 365 days a year. In addition to the delicious food, prepared in the kitchens of Los Robles Rehabilitation Hospital in accordance with nutritional dietary guidelines, Meals On Wheels’ volunteers deliver holiday gifts and surprises, as well as daily smiles and friendly conversation to seniors.

  • Pick up meals for your route at East Los Robles Rehabilitation Hospital between 10:45 AM and 11:00 AM
  • Plan on two hours to deliver meals (this varies according to the route.)
  • Regular drivers drive the same route on the same day each week.
  • Substitute drivers are asked to drive any of the seven routes which need a substitute driver.  They can choose from the request emails which go out to them.
  • We ask that substitute drivers try to drive two to three times per month.
  • Duties include sharing smiles with seniors and careful delivery of the food prepared especially for them.

Adult Day Program

Location 401 Hodencamp Road, Thousand Oaks

The Senior Concerns Adult Day program is a place where older adults with cognitive and/or physical impairments can come to enjoy activities and socialization with the care and supervision they need.  Our participants look forward to their time at the Adult Day Center, where they can participate in fun, enriching programs and activities that help fulfill social, spiritual and recreational needs while socializing with peers in a friendly, respectful and caring environment.

Volunteers help augment our programs and provide more individual attention to our participants. Volunteers may help with:

  • Engaging in conversations with participants
  • Assisting to lead or facilitate activities at your comfort level
  • Serving snacks and drinks as needed

Main hours of the program are between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.  We request volunteer sign up for a 2-hour shift and commit to at least once a week.
