  • Moving Forward Rehabilitation

    Our Moving Forward program is designed for those striving to restore abilities lost due to stroke, cardiovascular difficulties, orthopedic surgery and other debilitating conditions.

    Our person-centered program is tailored to the individual. Moving Forward includes physical, occupational and speech/language therapies and a full range of interdisciplinary support, including doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and others. From therapy and medically integrated programs to our holistic wellness services, we tailor a care plan to improve strength, independence and quality of life.

    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. Returning home as quickly as possible is always the desire. However, returning home without the proper rehabilitation can greatly increase the chance of seniors experiencing a setback resulting in rehospitalization. Prior to returning home, our team, in partnership with the patient and family, will conduct a comprehensive in-home safety evaluation to ensure patients can successfully navigate their home with confidence. With Moving Forward, our goal is to return our participants home safely with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms.

    No matter what your age or health level, our clinicians are skillfully trained and committed to your success. They take time to get to know and understand what motivates you. Based on proven methodologies, you can count on our clinical team to provide the latest treatments, with respect and compassion. Your health and happiness are always our priority.

    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.

    We monitor our senior rehabilitation outcomes and use the data to consistently improve our services.

    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, nursing, contracture management, wheelchair position, mobility training and walking ability programs. Add this to our highly successful strength-building wellness and aerobic conditioning program, and you have an incredible combination that will truly help you Move Forward!

  • Long-Term Care

    Long-term care may be the perfect option for seniors who can no longer be cared for at home due to illness, injury, frailty or other limitations. Under the guidance of an attending physician, long-term care is provided by licensed nurses, specially trained health care aides and a full interdisciplinary care team. Therapy programs are offered when needed to ensure residents’ function at the highest level of independence as possible. Wellness, social and other activity programs are offered to engage residents in an enriching community lifestyle.

    Medicaid Accepted! Our Medicaid Specialists can assist you through the application process.

  • Respite Care

    While it’s natural for caregivers to allow their own needs to get pushed aside, it’s important for them to realize that they deserve a break from their responsibilities in order to properly care for themselves.

    This is where senior respite care can make a difference in a caregiver’s life. Respite stays are an option for those who need respite care services for elderly friends or family on a short-term basis. This allows home caregivers the ability to travel, start a new job, recuperate from an illness, or pursue other interests. Many find respite stays are the perfect option for recovery from surgery or hospitalization.

    Should a short stay require extended care, we can accommodate that, too. We carefully examine the needs of our respite guests and provide the level of care required to make their stay comfortable and enjoyable. Family members leave with the confidence that their loved one is safe and in good hands.

  • Hospice Care

    Hospice and palliative care for seniors is designed to provide comfort, care, and pain relief for those facing terminal illness. Hospice care involves a team approach to supporting patients and their families with expert medical care and pain management, along with meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of both the patient and the family.

    Hospice and palliative care represent a compassionate approach to end-of-life care, assuring the best quality of life and allowing your loved ones to live as comfortably as possible. American Senior Communities partners with local hospice companies to offer comprehensive hospice services, including skilled nursing care, respite care, spiritual and bereavement counseling, medical equipment and supplies, social services, and pharmacy services. By assembling an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, aides, volunteers, social workers and clergy, we are able to serve the special needs of hospice patients and their families.

“I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful services you provided after my back surgery. The aides were so nice and seemed to really like their jobs. The physical therapists were great. I couldn’t stand on my own when I arrived, but they helped a lot. I would recommend Clark Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center to anyone needing these services.”

— Marco Fontes, former resident

“Clark has an awesome therapy team. They had me from bed-bound to walking short distances and ready to transfer in about six months. They were very caring. This is a loving place.”

— Roxann Norris, former Moving Forward patient

“I would like to thank the staff at Clark Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center. I enjoyed my stay, and the therapy team was excellent. My experience was great, and I would recommend this center to all of my friends.”

— Steve Wilson, former Moving Forward patient

“I came to get rehabilitation here in 2015. After spending a little bit of time home, I realized my medical problems became too much to handle. Since I liked it here so well, I decided to make this my home. The care I receive is superior to all, my needs are met and the staff is always respectful and caring. Everyone knows me and my habits and can accommodate me. I like to stay up at night and sleep during the day, and since this is my home that isn’t a problem. I love it here.”

— Brenda Conley, resident

“My time at Clark has been great. The people here make me feel like a person, and the staff has been very helpful with my rehabilitation. It has just been a great experience.”

— Cheryl Oster, resident
