Bradley, IL (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Heritage Woods of Watseka, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is partnering with the Ford Iroquois Public Health Department to host a flu shot clinic from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Oct. 10.
The community, which is located at 577 Martin Ave. in Watseka, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
“We encourage everyone to take precautions this year to stay healthy. One way they can stay healthy is by getting their flu shot early,” said Heritage Woods of Watseka Administrator Tracey Hardey.
Attendees should bring their insurance cards and photo identification. The out-of-pocket cost for those who would like to pay cash is $30.
Light refreshments will be served.

The Heritage Woods of Watseka affordable assisted living community combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.
“We provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Hardy.
Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio and one-bedroom floor plans includes a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and 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.
