Happy March – Spring can’t be far behind! As much as we’ve loved the wet and wild weather, we are all looking forward to the warmer, longer days of spring. This month in our resident newsletter, you’ll meet several of our fascinating residents, including Dr. Elidé Beltram, a psychoanalyst, writer, scientist, composer whose life experiences include studying the behavior of the wild orangutan of Borneo and teaching language to dolphins in Hawaii!
You’ll also be introduced to Rod Sanders, whose lifelong love of music started at an early age. Rod picked up the guitar at the age of 12 when his parents gave him a guitar for Christmas, and he has been playing ever since!
Barbara Morris is our resident of the month. Barbara is such a joy and inspiration to everyone at the Townehouse, and she devotes many hours monthly to helping residents in various activities including calling Thursday night bingo, leading our bible study and Thursday morning prayer group, and volunteering as a Ventura Townehouse Ambassador.
Meanwhile, resident David Lenahan shares his thoughts on having time for cultivating meaningful relationships with others as we grow older.

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.
