Moving Forward rehabilitation is designed for those striving to restore abilities due to stroke, cardiovascular difficulties, orthopedic surgery and other debilitating conditions. Our goal is to help participants return home safely following a hospitalization with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms.
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 other service care providers. 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.
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!

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 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.

The coronavirus pandemic has deeply impacted lives in our local community and lives all around the world. According to the CDC, older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19. At American Senior Communities, we are working tirelessly to reduce the spread of this virus and its effects on our residents and employees. This includes aggressive testing. Uniquely and early on, ASC created our own testing strike team of nurses. We partnered with a private lab to expand our testing capabilities to more quickly and thoroughly identify residents and employees that may be affected by COVID-19. Senior communities that test aggressively may report higher number of cases than other communities that do not have the test capabilities of ASC. This strategy enhances our ability to quickly identify and implement isolation protocols as appropriate. Our testing strategy is ongoing and includes retesting residents who are in recovery.
Open communication with families and loved ones is an extremely important priority for us. Below is the most current COVID-19 data for this community.
RESIDENT AND EMPLOYEE DATA
Our residents and the families we serve are very important to us. We will continue to move forward with compassion, and an abundance of caution and quality care. For general information and updates, visit ASCCare.com/COVID19update.
We are in this together, thank you for your continued support.

“When I came to Countryside Meadows, I could not walk on my own, I depended on everyone for everything. I was nervous about my stay, but they made me feel so at home. I've had the best therapy and the best care from the top to the bottom since I've been here. Today is my birthday, and I am going home tomorrow! I'll be able to walk on my own with the assistance of only a walker. I could not have done this without the wonderful staff at Countryside Meadows. I would like to say if you have anyone that needs any rehabilitation please check out Countryside Meadows. You can't beat them!”— Dorothy Burge, former Moving Forward patient

His journey’s end was handled with respect and care. We could not have done this without everyone. Many thanks to all of the staff who touched our lives.”— Deb Cuminotti, daughter of resident
