Bradley, IL (PRWEB) July 16, 2013
Prairie Living at Chautauqua, a BMA Management affordable assisted living community, is hosting a Summer Sock Hop from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 20.
The community, which is located at 955 Villa Ct. in Carbondale, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
“We invite you to join us as we dance the night away and reminisce about the rock and roll days of yesteryear,” says Andrea Arview Frey, Director of Marketing for Prairie Living. “Our Sock Hop will feature the best music of the 1950s for everyone to enjoy, from the young to the young at heart.”
The Sock Hop is open to the public, and there is no charge to attend.

Prairie Living is the only community in Jackson County that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. The affordable assisted living community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
“We provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or struggling alone at home,” says Frey.
Prairie Living combines residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications, and a variety of convenience and support services.
Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the apartments features 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 to participate in activities and special programs,” says Frey.
BMA Management, the company that manages the affordable assisted living community, is based in Bradley, Illinois.
“Our focus,” says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA, “is to provide the residents of Prairie Living with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping each resident achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.”
Communities managed by BMA Management include the Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities in the St. Louis Metro East area and the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Benton, Centralia, Flora, McLeansboro and Mt. Vernon.
