Flexibility to Customize Your Care at Blair House

Residents appreciate the freedom and flexibility our independent living communities offer as needs around personal care and medical assistance change. Choosing a la carte from third-party health care and personal care providers* -- many with offices right inside the community -- gives them the power to choose their providers and obtain similar services as they would in a higher level of care like assisted living, but without giving up the independence, warm community of friends, and fun-loving atmosphere they enjoy so much.

Interests and Activities at Blair House

Local Beauty Care

The convenience of Blair House's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Outside clients come in to use the services, and while there they socialize with the residents. Getting pampered while meeting new people is always fun.

Fitness Classes

Blair House's residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

There's a group that likes to get outside and walk, they call it the "fresh-air fitness challenge." A certified Arthritis Foundation Instructor comes and leads an exercise class at least 3 times a week, we keep our residents moving.


Nutritious Dining for Seniors

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Blair House’s dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

Our award-winning chef makes just about everything from scratch, and really collaborates with residents to present the best food possible. The omelette to order station is always a crowd favorite.


Local Area Activities

There’s so much to explore in the Normal area and Blair House makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

You can join the bi-monthly lunch outings and make friends with fellow foodies! A few of the popular bus excursions are the Miller Park Zoo, baseball games, and various places to shop.



Social Activities for Seniors

Blair House’s comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

Residents with a green thumb love to help take care of the community garden. Sometimes the fruits of their labor even end up in the chef's meals!


Pet Friendly

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Blair House. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

There's a beautiful outdoor walking track that residents with pets truly enjoy. The pets do too! And any day the therapy animals come to the community for a visit is a very good day.


Community Technology

Blair House is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

Independent Senior Travel

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Blair House also operates a program that lets residents get a taste of faraway countries. Once a month, residents can enjoy a themed happy hour with music, food, and presentations related to a new country. They also get a stamp in their community passport.

Volunteer Opportunities

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Pre-school kids come in weekly to perform for the residents. The audience is always packed!

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.

Keeping Our Community Healthy

Blair House operates with extensive protocols that mitigate the spreading of COVID-19 and transparently shares the number of active resident cases, updated weekdays by 11 A.M. Eastern Standard Time.
