Sharing love and joy is what makes life truly meaningful. And no one knows this better than Barbara. She volunteers her time with grace and kindness. This is one reason out of many why we chose Barbara and wish to honor her with resident of the month. Barbara volunteers her time calling Thursday night bingo, facilitating Wednesday morning bible study, leading the Thursday morning prayer group, and she is always available to assist with many other activities. These include room visits to residents who are confined to their rooms. She is also an ambassador to many of our new residents. And you will always find her lending a helping hand during our Wine and Cheese socials.
Barbara Morris was born September 29, 1949, and was raised on a farm in Harrisville, Mississippi. Barbara has 11 siblings (6 brothers and 5 sisters). Her parents raised all her siblings in church, where she became very active. Barbara was a Sunday School teacher, choir director and the choir president. She also worked in the Home Mission Society, and Sunday School Baptist Training Union. Barbara was also a member of two quartet singing groups, the Singing Inspirations, and the True Believers. Both singing groups kept her busy spreading the gospel traveling all around Mississippi and surrounding states. Barbara is now a valued member for our Townehouse Singers group.
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.
