Eagle Ridge of Decatur, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host an ice cream social at 2 p.m. on Sept. 26.

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 make homemade ice cream on the Eagle Ridge patio.

“We have a great afternoon planned with music and ice cream for our residents and guests as we enjoy another late summer day,” said Eagle Ridge Administrator Amy Bretz.

The ice cream social is free and open to the public.

Eagle Ridge is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., 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 Bretz.

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 Bretz.

BMA Management -- the company that has operated Eagle Ridge since the community opened for occupancy 10 years ago -- is based in Bradley, Illinois.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA, "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."

Communities managed by BMA include the Bowman Estates affordable assisted living community in Danville, Illinois; the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Charleston, Flora and Watseka; and the Prairie Winds affordable assisted living community in Urbana.
