Bradley, IL (PRWEB) July 28, 2013
John Evans, a BMA Management affordable assisted living community, holds weekly Strong for Life classes that focus on specialized strength training for older adults.
The community, which is located at 1320 Executive Ct. in Pekin, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
Classes begin at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A class is also offered at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
“We encourage older adults to join us for a specialized training program that will help them live the healthiest life possible,” said Bridget Rumler, Director of Marketing at John Evans.
At John Evans Supportive Living, health and fitness are a priority.
The community, which is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., has implemented the Eat Smart, Live Strong program. The initiative was originally developed by the United States Department of Agriculture for adults between the ages of 60 and 74. It is designed to encourage older adults to increase the amount of fruits and vegetables they eat to at least 3½ cups per day and to participate in at least 30 minutes of moderately intense physical activity each day.
The average age of residents in assisted living communities is 84. The communities serve older adults who need some help with activities of daily living to maintain their independence.
Earlier this year, BMA received a Best of the Best award from the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) in the “A Taste of the Future: The Next Generation Dining Menu” category. ALFA is the largest national association exclusively dedicated to professionally-managed, resident-centered senior living communities and the residents and families they serve. The Best of the Best awards program is designed to recognize outstanding business practices in the senior living industry.
