Our Moving Forward program is designed for those striving to restore abilities lost due to stroke, cardiovascular difficulties, orthopedic surgery and other debilitating conditions. Programs vary in frequency and intensity and include physical, occupational and speech/language therapies. Our goal is to return our participants home safely with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms.
Physical Therapy focuses primarily on independent mobility, regaining strength and balance, using proper body mechanics and energy saving techniques to better perform mobility tasks.
Occupational Therapy promotes independence with daily living activities like bathing, eating, dressing, self-care and home management tasks. Participants gain strength and coordination while learning to conserve their energy.
The goal of Speech/Language Therapy is to increase functional communication, cognitive skills, and teach safe swallowing by introducing diet modifications and special feeding techniques. Therapy may include muscle retraining, compensatory strategies, and use of communication devices.
Exclusively at American Senior Communities, the Road to Recovery program offers the opportunity for our interdisciplinary team, the patient, and their family to meet within the first 72 hours after admission to map out their Road to Recovery by identifying discharge goals. We monitor our rehabilitation outcomes and use the data to consistently improve our services. In-home assessments are performed by the therapy team prior to discharge to ensure a safe transition back to home.
Upscale benefits in our Moving Forward Wing (at selected locations) include private suites, exclusive dining area and courtyard, electric beds, spacious living rooms, elegant family lounge area, cable TV and phones.
Services include wound care, rehabilitation screenings, fall prevention, restraint reduction, restorative nursing, contracture management, wheelchair position and mobility, and walking ability programs. Add this to our highly successful New Energy Wellness (at selected locations) strength building and aerobic conditioning program, and you have an incredible combination that will truly help you move forward!

In response to the shortage of nurses in Indiana, American Senior Communities has expanded its support of caregiver staff in an unprecedented way by making it as easy as possible for staff members to continue their formal education while maintaining their current jobs.
Caring people make the difference at American Senior Communities. You can feel it the minute you walk into our communities and meet our staff. They are experts at senior healthcare who are not just doing a job, but following a calling.
At American Senior Communities, it?s our Caring People That Make the Difference. That?s why we created the Quest for Excellence Program?to honor exceptional ASC employees at each community for the service they provide our residents each and every day.
To compassionately serve each resident with quality care and excellence through health solutions that foster independence and self-esteem.
At a time when home and health services are seen as fragmented and, consequently, frustrating, where can today's senior adults find a housing community to call home? That was our challenge, and the reason we created American Senior Communities. We've created communities specifically designed to serve today's seniors by providing a multitude of lifestyle choices with integrated services and amenities.
Each American Senior Community is part of the neighborhood in which it exists. Our leaders and staff live in surrounding areas and know the community well. We value the same things in life that you do. The foundation of our communities is based on the knowledge that we'll be part of your neighborhood for many, many years.
When someone chooses to live in one of our communities, we become an extension of their family. We take the time to get to know each of our residents and their families on a personal level. Our communities are made up of individuals, and with that in mind, we focus on serving individual needs.
