Grand Prairie of Macomb is the only senior living community in McDonough County to be certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. The community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.

“We provide older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or struggling alone at home,” says Keene. “Residents benefit from living in a residential apartment-home environment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications.”

Certified nursing assistants are on-duty at Grand Prairie 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 programs such as our Memory Lane Party,” says Keene.

Based in Bradley, Illinois, BMA Management operates 36 senior living communities that together house nearly 3,400 homes and apartments.

“Our focus is on providing residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve in addition to the help and assistance that they need,” says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA.

Communities managed by BMA include the Heritage Woods affordable assisted living communities in Aledo, Moline, Ottawa and Sterling, Illinois, and John Evans Supportive Living in Pekin.
