The California Commission on Aging typically holds its meetings quarterly in various locations across the State. Members of the Commission recently expressed interest in visiting El Dorado County because of its rural setting and to learn more about its programs. Established in 1973 as part of the Older Californians Act, the California Commission on Aging is a 25 member body that advises the state's Governor and Legislature, along with federal, state and local agencies, on programs and services that affect older adults. The primary purpose of the commission is to advance issues fundamental to ensuring healthy, purposeful and dignified longevity for all Californians.
