BMA Affordable Assisted Living Community to Host Ice Cream Social
Date:7/23/2013

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Heritage Woods of Freeport -- a BMA affordable assisted living community -- will celebrate National Ice Cream Month with an ice cream social from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 28.

The community, 1500 S. Forest Road in Freeport, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

“We invite the community to join us for a sweet summer treat and take a tour of our new community,” said Freeport Administrator Kelly Hillan. The community opened its doors to residents and their families in June.

For more information about the ice cream social or Heritage Woods, call 815-801-3900.

The Heritage Woods community was developed by BMA Management, Ltd., in partnership with the Stephenson County Nursing Center Foundation. BMA, which is the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois, will serve as the management company.

“We provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Hillan. “Residents will benefit from living in a residential apartment-home setting and receiving personal assistance and help with medications.”

Private studio and one-bedroom apartments are available. Each apartment features a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and an emergency alert system.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Three meals per day, housekeeping and laundry are be among the included services.

“Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that will be available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in social activities and special programs no matter what the weather,” says Hillan.

Heritage Woods is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which allows the community to serve adults 65 and older of all financial means, including those on Medicaid.

BMA Management is based in Bradley, Illinois. The company operates 36 assisted living, senior living and memory care communities that together house nearly 3,400 apartments.

“Our focus,” says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA Management, “is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance that they need. Our emphasis at Heritage Woods of Freeport is on helping each resident to achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.”

Communities managed by BMA Management include the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Belvidere, Ottawa, Rockford and Sterling, Illinois. BMA also manages the Heritage Woods of Huntley assisted living community in Huntley, Illinois.
