Date:6/10/2013

Bradley, IL (PRWEB) June 10, 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 13.

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.

The workshop is open to the public and will focus on relationship building, how to deal with grief and loss, and how to gain the extra support needed to be a caregiver.

There is no cost to attend.

For more information about the workshop or Grand Prairie of Macomb, call 309-833-5000.

Grand Prairie is the only senior living community in McDonough County that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which enables the community to serve adults 65 and older of all incomes.

The community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA Management, "is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve and the help and assistance that they need."

Adds Andrea Keene, Administrator of Grand Prairie, "residents benefit from living in a residential apartment-home environment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications."

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a registered 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 events," says Keene.

Grand Prairie recently was rated one of the Top 20 assisted living communities in Illinois by Assisted Living Today for providing trustworthy and competent care and fostering the individuality and independence of residents.

Based in Bradley, Illinois, BMA Management operates 36 assisted living, senior living and memory care communities in Illinois that together house nearly 3,400 homes and apartments.

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