Bradley, IL (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
St. Anthony of Lansing, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host a VIP party and ribbon-cutting ceremony from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 20. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will begin at 4 p.m. at St. Anthony.
The community, which is located at 3025 Spring Lake Drive in Lansing, Illinois, serves low-income seniors who need some help to maintain their independence.
The St. Anthony of Lansing assisted living community was developed on more than four acres of property on the east side of Chicago Ave., north of 178th St., in Lansing, Illinois. The community - a $27.9 million development that will open later this month - houses 125 one-bedroom apartments. Reservations are being accepted.
"We will be providing older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says St. Anthony Administrator Laurena Carter.
The community will combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications, and a variety of convenience and support services, such as meals, housekeeping and laundry.
Residents will live in private apartments that they will furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the apartments will feature 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, will be on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
"Residents also will benefit from all of the opportunities that will be available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special programs," says Carter.
St. Anthony's will be certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which emphasizes personal choice, dignity, privacy and individuality.
The affordable assisted living community will be managed by BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois.
