Grand Prairie recently was recognized as one of the Top 20 assisted living communities in Illinois by Assisted Living Today for providing trustworthy and competent care and fostering the independence and individuality of residents.
The affordable assisted living community is the only community for older adults in McDonough County that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. The community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., which is the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
“We provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Daudelin.
The community combines residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and the availability of a variety of convenience and support services.
Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Certified nursing assistants 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 to participate in activities and special programs,” says Daudelin.
