Senior Care at American Senior Communities–
Rehabilitation Speeds Up Recovery
American Senior Communities’ Moving Forward rehabilitation program is designed for those striving to restore abilities lost due to stroke, cardiovascular difficulties, orthopedic surgery, and other debilitating conditions. The program is tailored to the individual and includes physical, occupational and speech/language therapies.
Returning home as quickly as possible is always the desire, but returning without the proper rehabilitation greatly increases the chances of seniors experiencing re-injury. With Moving Forward, the goal is to return patients home safely with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms. Click here to learn more.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Care
American Senior Communities offers experts to care for individuals challenged with memory loss. While a cure for Alzheimer’s disease does not yet exist, many options are available that enable those with this disease, or other forms of memory loss, to enjoy the best quality of life possible. When it becomes too difficult to continue caring for your loved ones with memory loss at home, contact American Senior Communities.
Persons with memory challenges live at Auguste’s Cottage, which is a center located within ASC’s senior care communities. The programs that are provided are structured and research-based, utilizing a person-centered, wellness-based model of care. Excellent healthcare is always provided, while quality of life is the primary focus. Stimulating daily activities are offered and encouraged to sustain independence and promote a healthy spirit. This protected environment fosters dignity and supports autonomy by reducing challenges.

Is Long-Term Care Needed?
When you or your aging loved one can no longer be cared for in the home, long-term care offers around-the-clock care by a specially trained team of healthcare professionals. Long-term healthcare includes a variety of services for people who cannot care for themselves for extended lengths of time. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are available at American Senior Communities centers to ensure long-term healthcare residents function at the highest possible level of independence.
American Senior Communities’ team of geriatric nursing specialists have developed unique protocols and procedures for also providing rehabilitation and skilled care for seniors through short-term stays. These programs provide high-quality medical care, but also focus on the emotional well-being of each resident. The setting is home-like, cheerful, soothing and secure to ensure the highest quality of life is maintained for you or your loved ones. ASC’s caring people make the difference.
