Adult living community opens its doors

HOOPESTON — Autumn Fields Adult Community, 325 E. Orange St., is now open for business and will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. Friday with the Hoopeston Chamber of Commerce.

The open house will run through Nov. 1, with different events and tours scheduled each day.

The new business will sponsor a food drive for Grant Township Food Cupboard during the week-long promotion and requests non-perishable items be brought for the food cupboard during a visit.

Autumn Fields offers studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments complete with a living room, kitchenette, a bathroom with a walk-in shower and emergency call systems in each unit. The rooms are unfurnished.

"We want the residents to bring their own furniture to make it feel more like home," said Aly Jackson of Jackson Construction. "Our goal for the new residents is to make this transition as easy as possible."

Presently the community has seven residents with 25 apartments available.

Features include a beautiful courtyard, main and private dining rooms, great room with a fireplace, beauty and barber salon, movie theater and an activity room.

"The use of the theater room will be for residents and their family and friends," Jackson said. “The movies will be chosen by the residents."

Services offered to residents, according to the press release, include professional help in varying degrees with daily activities, such as bathing, medications and dressing. Also offered is a Certified Nursing Assistant on duty 24 hours a day, plus nursing supervision, three meals a day with snacks, weekly cleaning and laundry services, utilities, scheduled transportation to doctors appointments or shopping, and daily activities. Respite care also is available.

"Our current amenities and services are very comprehensive," Jackson said. "However, as the needs of our residents change, we will strive to meet them."
