Date:6/23/2013

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) June 23, 2013

Grand Prairie of Macomb, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is hosting an Alternatives for Older Adults workshop on Sharing the Caring at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 27.

The community, which is located at 1307 Meadowlark Lane in Macomb, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

"Come and learn about relationship building, how to deal with grief and loss, and how to gain the extra support needed to be a caregiver," says Andrea Keene, Administrator of Grand Prairie.

The workshop is open to the public. There is no charge to attend.

After the workshop, at 3 p.m., Grand Prairie is hosting an Ice Cream Social.

For more information about the workshop, the Ice Cream Social or Grand Prairie, call 309-833-5000.

Grand Prairie of Macomb is the only senior living community in McDonough County that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. The community recently was recognized by Assisted Living Today as one of Top 20 assisted living communities in Illinois for providing trustworhy and competent care and for fostering the individuality and independence of each resident.

"We provide older adults of all incomes with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Keene.

The community combines residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All three meals each 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 Keene.

Grand Prairie is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois.

BMA is the largest provider of assisted living in the state.

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

Communities managed by BMA include the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Aledo, Moline, Sterling and Ottawa, Illinois. BMA also manages John Evans Supportive Living, an affordable assisted living community in Pekin, Illinois.
