Deer Path opened in 2013 and combines 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 live in private apartments that they will furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the apartments 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, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
"We provide a community for adults that gives them an alternative to living in a nursing home with a much older population or struggling alone at home," said Gail Williams, Director of Marketing at Deer Path. "Our community meets the unique needs and interests of residents, and we're looking forward to helping them make our community their new home."
Residents also benefit from opportunities to socialize with neighbors and participate in activities and special programs.
The community has an activity room, beauty salon/barber shop, computer lab, convenience store, therapy room, a service dog training area and basketball court.
Deer Path is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which emphasizes personal choice, dignity, privacy and individuality. The community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois.
