Date:5/11/2013

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) May 11, 2013

Health screenings will be available at no cost from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, May, 16, when the Memorial Hospital wellness vehicle visits Cambridge House of O’Fallon, a BMA affordable assisted living community in the St. Louis Metro East area.

The community, which is located at 844 Cambridge Blvd. in O’Fallon, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

Mammograms; screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar; and non-invasive colorectal cancer screenings will be available.

"We invite you to come and take advantage of the health and wellness screenings that will be available at no cost to you," says Tammy Loman, Director of Marketing for Cambridge House of O'Fallon.

Cambridge House of O’Fallon will be providing refreshments.

To schedule an appointment for a mammogram or for more information on the screenings that will be available, call Kelly Belt at 618-624-9900.

Cambridge House of O’Fallon is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities located in the Metro East. The other communities are located in Maryville and Swansea, Illinois.

“All three communities provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” says Loman. “Residents benefit from living in a residential apartment-home environment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications.”

Private one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments are available, with each apartment featuring a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, and emergency response system.

Certified nursing assistants 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 participate in social and educational programs,” says Loman.

The communities are certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and are 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.”
