Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

Heritage Woods of Belvidere, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host a fall prevention presentation at 1 p.m. on Sept. 13.

The community, which is located at 4730 Squaw Prairie Rd. in Belvidere, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid.

Rich Burkinshaw, the administrator at Able Home Health, will lead the discussion.

The presentation, which coincides with Fall Prevention Awareness Month, is free and open to the public.

“Join us at Heritage Woods as we learn about ways to maintain our balance and prevent falls,” said Robin Bertram, Director of Marketing for Heritage Woods of Belvidere.

Heritage Woods of Belvidere is the only senior living community in Boone County, Illinois, that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program.

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

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

Each of the private one-bedroom apartments features a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning and an 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.

"Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in social activities and special programs," says Bertram.

BMA Management is based in Bradley, Illinois. The company operates 38 assisted living, senior living and memory care communities that together house more than 3,800 homes and apartments.

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