Arthur, Ill. (WCIA)
We’re checking out what’s new at Eberhardt Senior Community.
We are a unique, privately owned skilled care, rehab facility. The campus includes skilled care, rehab to home, assisted living, and independent living. The facility is governed by a Board of Directors. Arthur and the surrounding communities take an active interest in the facility. Area churches hold weekly services here. The Lions Club comes in and does Bingo once a month for our residents.
One of the things that the activity department heads up is our Home Buddies program. Every year 4th graders come out and spend time with our residents once a month during the school year. At the end of the year we have a party along with a butterfly release. This has gone on for many, many years! Some of the parents remember coming out here when they were in the 4th grade.
