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

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

The communities combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications, and a variety of convenience and support services.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their taste. Each of the one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans include 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, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Three meals a 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 Henry.

BMA Management, the company that manages all three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities, 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 they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping residents achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible."

Communities managed by BMA include the Prairie Living affordable assisted living community in Carbondale and the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Benton, Centralia, Flora, McLeansboro and Mt. Vernon, Illinois.
