Heritage Woods of Flora, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host informational Medicaid sessions on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30.

The community, which is located at 1003 W. 4th St. in Flora, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid.

An attorney from the Senior Law Center will discuss misconceptions about Medicaid qualifications. Guests will also learn about veterans benefits that cover the cost of assisted living options for veterans and their spouses.

Refreshments will be served during the presentations, which are free and open to the public.

“We invite senior citizens to stop by for one of the Medicaid sessions that we have planned for later this month,” said Heritage Woods Administrator Lucas Sigrist, adding that the community often hosts informative presentations to improve the well-being of residents and older adults who live in the Flora area.

Each of the private studio and one-bedroom apartments at Heritage Woods 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. 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 events," says Sigrist.
