Eagle Ridge of Decatur, a Gardant affordable assisted housing community, is planning a magic show and Taste of Eagle Ridge event on April 24.
The community, which is located at 875 W. McKinley Ave. in Decatur, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
Guests are invited to sample a variety of finger foods at the Taste of Eagle Ridge event, which will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reservations to attend must be made by April 21.
Local magician Randy Landry will put on a show from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Eagle Ridge is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and is managed by Gardant Management Solutions, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
The 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 older adults of all financial means with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Eagle Ridge Director of Marketing Amy Noonan.
Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their taste. 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 an 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.
"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 Noonan.
Gardant Management -- the company that has operated Eagle Ridge since the community opened for occupancy in 2003 -- is based in Bradley, Illinois.
"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of Gardant, "is to provide the residents of Eagle Ridge with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping each resident achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible."
