St. Anthony of Lansing, a BMA affordable assisted living community, will host a Fall Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 19.

The community, which is located at 3025 Spring Lake Drive in Lansing, Illinois, serves low-income seniors who need some help to maintain their independence.

Several activities are planned for the festival, including pumpkin painting and cookie decorating.

Guests will also have an opportunity to join residents as they play fun games for a chance to win great prizes.

Caramel apples, pie, popcorn and other treats will be served.

The festival is open to the public; there is no charge to attend.

“Come out and join us as we celebrate our first fall at St. Anthony with a fun-filled festival,” said Kourtnie Rohrbach, Director of Marketing.

The St. Anthony of Lansing assisted living community was developed on more than four acres of property on the east side of Chicago Ave., north of 178th St., in Lansing, Illinois. The community - a $27.9 million development that opened this summer - houses 125 one-bedroom apartments.

"We are providing older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Rohrbach.

The community 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 features 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.

"Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that will be available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special programs," says Rohrbach.

St. Anthony is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which emphasizes personal choice, dignity, privacy and individuality.

The affordable assisted living community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois.
