Cambridge House of Maryville is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities in the St. Louis Metro East area. The other communities are located in O'Fallon and Swansea.
All three communities operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and are managed by Gardant Management Solutions, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
The communities combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications, and a variety of convenience and support services.
Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their taste. Each of the one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans include 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. Meals, 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 Cambridge House Administrator Kendra Garnto.
Gardant Management Solutions, the company that manages all three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities, is based in Bradley, Illinois.
"Our focus," says Rod Burkett, President and CEO of Gardant, "is to provide Cambridge House residents with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping residents achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible."
