As experts in senior care, we are not just doing a job, but following a calling. We are here to help you and your family find answers, solutions, and peace of mind.

Our Senior Leadership
American Senior Communities is led by a team of compassionate, energetic professionals who make it their mission to enhance the lives of residents, their families, and our caring staff.
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 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 homes 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 the 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 four 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 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 are 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.
