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!
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.
Outpatient Therapy at American Senior Communities is a personalized approach to clinically-proven strategies that promote overall better health. By combining highly-trained and compassionate therapists with the latest technologies, our programs are structured to fit your needs. Goals are set and guided by therapists who are committed to excellence, integrity, quality and customer service. Our treatments are designed to increase mobility by reducing inflammation and pain. In coordination with your physician, the best, most personalized care for you is always our highest priority.
• Effective, scientifically proven pain management interventions
• The utilization of new technologies that are effective and make therapy fun
• Physician-approved interventions for post-operative orthopedic and other procedures
• We encourage family and caregiver participation

“When I arrived at Swiss Villa Nursing & Rehabilitation, I couldn’t walk and I was very weak. I am much better now since I participated in physical therapy. I can walk longer distances now. The staff was so nice to me. I would absolutely recommend Swiss Villa Nursing & Rehabilitation to others. I couldn’t have had a better experience.”— Carl Hargrove, Moving Forward patient
“I was afraid that I would never walk again. My legs and I were not working together. After having physical therapy at Swiss Villa, I could walk again. I enjoyed Swiss Villa being so close to home so that my family could visit and eat supper with me. I got to visit with people that I knew but had not seen in quite a while. The nurses were always helpful!”— Naomi Johnson, resident
“Upon my arrival here, I couldn’t walk at all. I was wheelchair-bound. I wouldn’t talk because I was in an incredible amount of pain. The nursing department helped me manage my pain. The physical therapy department here is wonderful. They have updated equipment, and they’ve helped me so much. I love the exercise bicycle! The staff and residents are so wonderful and caring. I can now walk, talk and enjoy my life. I recommend Swiss Villa Nursing & Rehabilitation to anybody and everybody that I see along the way. Even the food is amazing!”— Jane Myers, resident
“The staff and residents of Swiss Villa are all very nice to me. I have had numerous therapies, and they have all really helped me. I love the activities that are planned for us, but my favorite was when we went bowling at the local bowling alley. I really enjoy the outings to local restaurants. I love that families can bring in pets. I would recommend Swiss Villa!”— Janet Clarke, resident
