Algonquin, IL (PressExposure) August 20, 2014 -- Eastgate Manor will celebrate "Supportive Living Week" during the week of April 21-25, 2014 with two special events. The senior living community plans to host a community event geared towards seniors living in their community on April 22. An April 24th event is open to professionals in the community and will begin with tours of Eastgate Manor. After the tours, cocktails and hors d'ouevres will be served at Cucina Bella in Algonquin. Both events are planned around the Affordable Assisted Living Coalition's (AALC) "It's a Wonderful Life" theme.
Supportive Living Week is the Affordable Assisted Living Coalition's premiere event and is held annually at the end of April. Supportive Living Week celebrates supportive living in Illinois as a viable and cost effective alternative for seniors. Eastgate Manor is a partner of the AALC.
"Supportive Living Week is great opportunity to spread the word about supportive living and how it differs from nursing home care or even assisted living facilities. We're looking forward to celebrating with our residents and meeting new seniors who might be looking for a place to call home," said Maureen Warren, Community Liaison, Eastgate Manor http://www.eastgatemanor.com.
Eastgate Manor's community event takes place on Tuesday, April 22 from 12:15-3:15 p.m. at Eastgate Manor, 101 Eastgate Court, Algonquin, IL. The event includes lunch, tours, giveaways, "It's a Wonderful Life" trivia and live entertainment.
The second event starts at 3:30 on Thursday, April 24. Tours of Eastgate Manor will be available from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at 101 Eastgate Court, Algonquin, IL. Anyone who tours the facility will be treated to a "VIP" ticket to an evening reception at Cucina Bella, 220 South Main Street, Algonquin. The reception will be held from 4:30-7:00 p.m. and includes cocktails and hors d'ouevres.
Space is limited for both events and RSVPs are required. RSVPs can be made to Maureen Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 847-458-2800.
The AALC is a non-profit coalition of individuals and facilities that operate under the State of Illinois Supportive Living Program (SLP). Supportive living communities offer an alternative to nursing home care for seniors who don't need full nursing home services but can't afford traditional assisted living programs. Eastgate Manor was the first supportive living community to be certified in McHenry County and continues to evolve and change in response to residents' needs.
