I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.James Broughton
You don’t have to be an artist or an author… all you need is to express your inner child. Find pictures, poems or anecdotes and bring them to life. Just come, open your mind to new experiences and let your creativity soar.
Write to family and friends… and/or find a pen pal. Or write to editors of newspapers, government officials or companies, letting them know how you feel about issues.
Discuss and debate top news stories, local, national and international.
Frequent guest speakers from the local community include experts on art, music, health, safety and other timely topics.
Stimulate your mind and join us for an exciting hour of word games. Challenge yourself in this memory-enhancing program.
Grab a board and join us for the best Bingo in town, twice weekly with cash prizes.
Join in for a serious game of Poker or Bridge, or a lighthearted round of Rummy or Kings in the Corner.
Celebrate with gusto at our twice monthly Happy Hour with your choice of beverage, including wine, whiskey sour, margarita or something more exotic, along with hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment. Enjoy yourself, party and relax among friends.
Full cable programming and daily movies are streamed to our residents’ rooms for when they are ready to wind down and relax. Twice weekly, specialty movies are screened in our in-house theater, followed by animated discussions.
My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.
Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
Staff is very helpful and always concerned about my Mother’s needs, the interior and grounds maintenance is exceptional. Dining provides healthy menus to choose from. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful. Best decision we ever made was bringing my mom here.
