BMA Management Affordable Assisted Living Community to Host Ask the Expert Program on Sleep Health for Seniors

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) July 14, 2013

Heritage Woods of Charleston, a BMA Management affordable assisted living community, is hosting an Ask the Expert program on sleep health for seniors and sleep apnea at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17.

The community, which is located at 480 W. Polk Ave. in Charleston, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

Licensed respiratory therapist Olen Frahm from Superior Medical Equipment in Charleston will be speaking.

“Come learn about the latest in testing and treatment for sleep apnea and about sleep health for seniors,” says Samantha Landrus, Director of Marketing for Heritage Woods of Charleston.

The Ask the Expert health education program is open to the public. There is no charge to attend.

For more information, call 217-345-4900.

The Heritage Woods of Charleston affordable assisted living community combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.

“We provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Landrus.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio and one-bedroom floor plans includes a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and 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 a day, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.

“Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and participate in activities and special programs,” says Landrus.

Heritage Woods of Charleston is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and managed by BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois.
