In Al’s Own Words
“Guess the place to start is where we each began our life’s journey. Peggy was born in a log cabin in the hills of Virginia, and I was born (so my mother told me) in a trash can in Pennsylvania. Fate stepped in and we both wound up in Los Angeles California. In 1974 my former sister-in-law, who knew Peggy, introduced me to her saying that this would be the girl I would marry. We began our lives together in 1975 and married in 1985 and will be celebrating our 38th anniversary. We have five children, three daughters and two sons, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
“When we met, Peggy was the comptroller for W.J. Sloan’s, a Beverly Hills retail furniture store, and in 1989 started MHR, a consulting firm assisting lawyers set up their offices. I owned Airmec Inc, an automotive air conditioning and parts manufacturing company and together, in 1985, we started R Video Productions Company. Peggy retired in 1995 and I retired in 1999. During these past 48 years we have enjoyed a very active life. In addition to our business, we sailed the seas and lakes in our Sea Ray boat and traveled or cruised to mostly everywhere. We had houses, the fancy cars, and boats, now we choose to continue our lives without all that goes with that lifestyle. Although we have many travels and adventures ahead, we chose the Ventura Townehouse for the next phase in our lives together. We look forward to making new friends here at the Townehouse and enjoying the many tales to be told.”
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.
