You know that old saying “my glass is half full” means I’m a “happy camper.” If you are not then your glass is probably half empty. Putting this into context, I mean that living at the Ventura Townehouse is contributing to my pleasure and comfort on a daily basis. Getting older is difficult to accept but it is a natural progression in life.
It is my observation that in a community of so many older people, there are always those that are content, those that wish to be more content, and those that will never be content. However, that is a fact of life. My experience of being recognized by name at the front desk, by the dining room wait people, the housecleaning staff, the assisted living personnel, the maintenance, and the management is commendable. Everyone knows your name is a good way to explain it. These are the people we live with and hopefully, we respond by knowing them by name.
Choices on what to do, what to eat, and how to get places, becomes a responsibility for me. If something doesn’t satisfy, I have an avenue to address those concerns. If living here is a plus in my life, I want it known. My experience is positive. I’m expressing my gratitude to those that I come in contact with each day so they know that their cheerfulness and helpfulness is appreciated beyond measure.

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.
