Date Posted : 06/20/2011
Cambridge House of Maryville has once again been awarded a deficiency-free survey by the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS).HFS is the department responsible for regulating communities such as Cambridge House that operate through the State of Illinois’ Supportive Living Program.Cambridge House of Maryville was awarded the deficiency-free survey after receiving a perfect score in its 2011 HFS survey, which was completed in June.In the survey process, representatives from HFS visited Cambridge House to conduct a detailed review of all aspects of the facility’s operation, including the physical plant, nursing and ancillary services, maintenance, food service and disaster preparedness. The survey process also included interviews with residents."Our emphasis at Cambridge House is helping residents maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible by providing love, compassion and dignity in addition to the care and assistance they need," says Tracy Skaer-Henry, Administrator. “As an affordable assisted living community," she says, "we are proud of our ability to serve older adults of all incomes, especially those who cannot afford private pay assisted living."She adds that "we strongly believe that communities such ours serve as a great alternative to nursing home care or to struggling alone at home for older adults who need some assistance to maintain their independence, but do not require skilled nursing home care."Cambridge House of Maryville is one of three Cambridge House affordable assisted living communities in the St. Louis Metro East area and one of 34 senior living communities managed by senior living provider BMA Management, Ltd., of Bradley, Illinois. BMA is the largest provider of affordable assisted living in Illinois and ranks as the 18th largest provider of assisted living in the nation.
