Carole was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and remembers as a child of five her mother would provide crayons and Disney coloring books. Carole would pass the time not coloring but shading and painting the Disney characters. Through the years, Carole has painted with many materials, her favorite being oils. Carole finds painting to be a spiritual experience, saying God works through her when she puts the paint to paper. When the last of her four children left the nest, Carole’s husband quit his job and they traveled the United States promoting and displaying Carole’s art. She never stopped painting while learning new techniques. Carole loves her life at the Townehouse and said she continues to paint from her memory with her limited sight. We look forward to seeing more of Carole’s work on Thursday, September 7th, in the Front Lobby. A select few will be on sale with proceeds going to the Gratuity Fund.
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.
