BMA Management, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois, has been nominated for an Assisted Living Blog-of-the-Year Award. The Blog nominated for the award features tips from Danville Police Officer Ron Soderstrom about what seniors can do to protect themselves from scams and fraud.

BMA Management, Ltd., has been nominated for an Assisted Living Today 2013 Blog-of-the-Year Award.

Based in Bradley, Illinois, BMA is the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois and ranks as the 16th largest provider of assisted living in the country.

The Blog that BMA posted in November 2012 on “Seniors: Helpful Tips to Reduce Your Risk of Being Scammed” was nominated for the award in the Best Seniors Finance and Legal Issues category.

The Assisted Living Today (ALTY) awards program is designed to honor the best blogs and articles from across the senior living and eldercare industry from the past year. A panel of industry experts hand-selected the blogs and articles that they felt were the best-written, most informative and most helpful across eight categories.

The BMA Blog that was nominated for ALTY honors focuses on an informational program that was conducted by Danville Police Officer Ron Soderstrom at Bowman Estates of Danville, an affordable assisted living community that BMA manages in Vermilion County, Illinois.

Soderstrom, who serves as Danville's Elderly Services Officer, spoke on what seniors can do to protect themselves from scams and fraud.

On-line voting will determine the winning blogs and articles in each of the eight categories.

Voting ends on Thursday, March 7, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, March 12.

“We are proud to have once again been selected as a nominee,” says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA. “We also extend our gratitude to Officer Soderstrom for taking the time to come and provide such valuable information to older adults and their families.”

Last year, BMA was honored with a ALTY Blog-of-the-Year Award for a Blog on “Calling Assisted Living as ‘Acute Care Setting’ is Just Plain Wrong.” The Blog focused on comments that appeared in a story on “Can the CLASS Act be Saved” that ran in the LifeCycles section of the Washington Times.
