Cambridge House of O'Fallon is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities in the Metro East area. The other Cambridge House communities are located in Maryville and Swansea.
"We provide older adults of all incomes with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Tammy Loman, Director of Marketing at Cambridge House.
All three communities combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.
The private one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments 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. 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 events such as our car cruise," says Loman.
All three Cambridge House communities are certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and are managed by Gardant Management Solutions, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
"Our focus is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve and help and assistance that they need," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of Gardant. "Our emphasis is on helping each resident to achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible."
