St. Louis Metro East Affordable Assisted Living Community to Host Senior Health and Fitness Day

Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) May 26, 2013

Cambridge House of O'Fallon, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is celebrating National Senior Health and Fitness Day with an afternoon of health and fitness presentations from 2 to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29.

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.

A Walgreens representative will be discussing the importance of getting flu shots and vaccines, and BMA Management Executive Chef Tim Renner will be showing you how to cook healthier meals, says Tammy Loman, Director of Marketing for Cambridge House of O'Fallon.

Guests will also learn about exercise activities, including Tai Chi and senior chair exercises.

For more information about the Senior Health and Fitness program or Cambridge House of O'Fallon, call 618-924-9900.

Cambridge House of O'Fallon is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities located in the St. Louis Metro East area. The other Cambridge House communities are located in Maryville and Swansea.

All three communities are managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois, and are certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program.

"We provide older adults of all incomes 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. Each of the apartments features 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. 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 to participate in activities and special programs," says Loman.

BMA Management, the company that manages the Cambridge House communities, operates 36 assisted living, senior living and memory care communities that together house nearly 3,400 homes and apartments. The company is based in Bradley, Illinois.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA, "is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve and the help and assistance that they need."

Communities operated by BMA include the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Benton, Flora, McLeansboro and Mt. Vernon, Illinois. BMA also operates the Prairie Living affordable assisted living community in Carbondale, Illinois, and Heritage Woods of Centralia, which features affordable assisted living apartments, senior living apartments and rental homes for low-income adults 55 and older.
