Our Moving Forward program is designed for those striving to restore abilities lost due to stroke, cardiovascular difficulties, orthopedic surgery and other debilitating conditions. Programs vary in frequency and intensity and include physical, occupational and speech/language therapies. Our goal is to return our participants home safely with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms.
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.
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. We monitor our rehabilitation outcomes and use the data to consistently improve our services. In-home assessments are performed by the therapy team prior to discharge to ensure a safe transition back to home.
Services include wound care, rehabilitation screenings, fall prevention, restraint reduction, restorative nursing, contracture management, wheelchair position and mobility, walking ability programs and more.
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:
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 includes a variety of services for people who cannot care for themselves for extended lengths of time. Under the guidance of an attending physician, long-term acute care is provided at our long-term care facilities by licensed nurses, specially trained health care aides and a full interdisciplinary care team.
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. Physical, occupational and speech therapies are also available to ensure our long-term health care residents function at the highest level of independence as possible. The setting is home-like, cheerful, soothing and secure to ensure the highest quality of life is maintained for you or your loved ones.
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.

Spring Mill Meadows- Couple Strives to Stay Together
“When my son entered the doors of Spring Mill Meadows, he was not able to walk on his own at all, but after some time with the amazing therapy team he was able to take over 60 steps by himself. He said his stay here was amazing and would recommend Spring Mill Meadows to anyone who needs therapy and rehabilitation. The CNAs were wonderful, and he even considered many of them friends. We would encourage anyone who needs some help getting back on their feet to come to Spring Mill Meadows.”— Robin McCoy, mother of former resident
“My father’s health has been in decline for the last couple of years. It was clear his dementia was getting worse and he would no longer be able to care for himself. I’m not sure what I would have done for my father if it hadn’t been for the great people at Spring Mill Meadows. They ensured my father’s wellbeing. They have really been helpful to me, and I know my father is in the best place he can be. Thank you, Spring Mill Meadows!”— Ain Embry, son of resident
“Kathryn has done very well since moving to Spring Mill Meadows. It took some time for her to adjust, but she eventually settled in and feels at home. She has always been an independent woman and is still able to feel independent in the Cottage. She was living on her own before, and we are so thankful to Spring Mill Meadows that she is not only getting three meals a day and has a safe place to be, but is also happy.”— Sue Miller, family member of resident
