Carbondale Affordable Assisted Living to Host Back-to-School Celebration

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) August 02, 2013

Prairie Living at Chautauqua – a BMA affordable assisted living community – is hosting a back-to-school celebration from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15.

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.

Outdoor games are planned for the event, and our staff will cook on the grill and serve ice cream.

Guests are asked to bring one school supply item. Prairie Living is collecting supplies for students from the Carbondale and Murphysboro school districts.

“Join us for an evening of fun as we help collect supplies for students,” said Andrea Arview, Prairie Living’s Director of Marketing.

Residents and staff are collecting school supplies for Carbondale and Murphysboro students.

'Prairie Living provides older adults of all incomes with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Arview. "Residents benefit from living in a residential apartment-home environment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications."

Each of the private apartments at Prairie Living features a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and emergency alert system.

Certified nursing assistants, who work under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Meals, 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 events," says Arview.
