Deer Path of Huntley, a Gardant affordable assisted living community, is hosting a Family Night Barbecue from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 5.

The community, which is located at 12500 Regency Parkway in Huntley, Illinois, serves adults with physical disabilities between the ages of 22 and 64.

The menu will include hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and watermelon.

Entertainment will be provided by a local disc jockey.

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 furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the apartments features 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.

"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 Deer Path Administrator Sarah Skradski. "Our community meets the unique needs and interests of residents, and they've made our community their 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 Gardant Management Solutions, of Bradley, Illinois.

Gardant Management Solutions is the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois and manages more than 50 assisted living communities across the country.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of Gardant, "is to provide Deer Path residents 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 Gardant include the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Batavia, Bolingbrook, Chicago, Gurnee, Manteno, McHenry, Plainfield, Rockford and Yorkville, Illinois. Gardant also manages the GateWay at River City community for adults 22 to 64 with physical disabilities, which opened in Peoria last year.
