All three communities operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and are managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.

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

One-bedoom and two-bedroom apartments are available, with each of the apartments featuring a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, and an emergency alert system.

Certified nursing assistants 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 programs," says Henry.

BMA Management, the company that operates the three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities, is based in Bradley, Illinois.

"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of BMA, "is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve and the help and assistance that they need."
