Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) February 02, 2015
Cambridge House of O’Fallon, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is hosting a Walkathon from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Feb. 27.
The community, which is located at 844 Cambridge Blvd. in O'Fallon, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
Walkers will start on the community’s third floor and work their way down to the front lobby as they take in all of the heart-themed apartment doors decorated by residents.
In all, attendees will walk one mile.
The Cambridge House Walkathon coincides with National Heart Health Month. Refreshments will be served during the event, and anyone who signs up for the walkathon by Feb. 16 will receive an "I Walked a Cambridge House Mile" shirt.

Cambridge House of O'Fallon is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities in the Metro East area. The other Cambridge House communities are located in Maryville and Swansea.
"We provide older adults of all incomes with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Tammy Loman, Director of Marketing at Cambridge House.
All three communities combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.
The private one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments 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. 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 events such as our car cruise," says Loman.
All three Cambridge House communities are certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and are managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
