As experts in memory care, American Senior Communities has reimagined person-centered, life-enhancing care in a way that is engaging, yet safe.

While a cure for Alzheimer’s disease does not yet exist, many options are available that enable those with the disease or other forms of memory loss to enjoy a higher quality of life. The progression of Alzheimer’s and the symptoms that accompany it often make it difficult for family members to continue care at home. In response, we’ve created Auguste’s Cottage, a program specializing in serving each individual through their unique experience with memory loss.
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. The concept is to focus on maintaining a secure environment where residents have a sense of belonging and meaning each and every day. We offer:
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 is a great option for those who struggle with daily tasks and 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 in our communities by licensed nurses, specially-trained health care aides and a full interdisciplinary care team.
Long-Term Care includes a variety of services, including social services and activities as well as physical, occupational and speech therapies to assist our residents in maintaining the highest level of independence possible. Our settings are home-like, cheerful, soothing and secure to ensure the highest quality of life for our residents.
Along with private pay, ASC is proud to accept a wide variety of payment options including Medicaid for qualified applicants. Our Medicaid specialists can assist you and your family through the application process.
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.
