Date:10/23/2013

Bradley, IL (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Heritage Woods of Sterling, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host a petting zoo from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 25.

The community, which is located at 2205 Oak Grove Ave. in Sterling, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

Staff from Furry Friends, a Princeton-based petting zoo, will bring several animals to visit Heritage Woods residents and guests. The visiting animals may include dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, llamas, mini horses, white tail deer, pot-bellied pigs or hedgehogs.

For more information about the petting zoo or Heritage Woods, call 815-625-7045.

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

The community 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.

“We provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Lopez.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio and one-bedroom floor plans include a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and emergency alert system.

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 participate in activities and special programs,” says Lopez.

Heritage Woods of Sterling is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program.

The affordable assisted living 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 the residents of Heritage Woods of Sterling with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need.
