  • 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!

  • Auguste’s Cottage Memory Care

    Auguste’s Cottage is a structured, research-based memory care program. We utilize a person-centered, wellness-based model of care that incorporates stimulating daily activities to sustain independence and promote a healthy spirit. Auguste’s Cottage is a self-contained center within our care community. The concept is to focus on maintaining a secure, home environment where residents have a sense of belonging and meaning each and every day. We offer:

    • A Meaningful Day activity program that builds on the eight domains of wellness
    • An emphasis on holistic and innovative care philosophies
    • A reminiscent and dementia supportive living environment

    Auguste’s Cottage is a self-contained center within our communities. We surround residents with artwork and special personal items from their past to help foster a sense of belonging and cultivate feelings of security. Plants adorn the halls and pets visit frequently. This protected environment fosters dignity and supports autonomy by reducing challenges.

  • 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.

“Clinton Gardens was a wonderful place for my step-dad. At first, he did not want to be there one little bit, but after a few days, he loved it there! He got lots of attention from the CNAs, nurses, therapists, laundry and cleaning staff, as well as the management team. He felt like a celebrity! I believe that this was the best place for him!”

— Connie Adams, family member of resident
