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.
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, restraint reduction, restorative nursing, contracture management, wheelchair position and mobility, and walking ability programs. Add this to our highly successful New Energy Wellness (at selected locations) strength building and aerobic conditioning program, and you have an incredible combination that will truly help you move forward!
The physical and emotional struggles that can accompany a debilitating injury or illness can deprive many seniors of the quality of life they’ve earned. Our Skilled Nursing Care is designed to provide compassionate senior medical care to those recovering from stroke, heart attack, orthopedic conditions or other disabilities. We’ve built a team of geriatric nursing specialists who have developed unique protocols and procedures for caring for the elderly through short-term or extended care, encompassing the physical and emotional well-being of each resident.
Long Term Care is a great option for those who 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 senior care is provided at our long term care facilities by licensed nurses, specially trained health care aide and a full interdisciplinary care team. 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.
Respite stays are an option for those who need respite care 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 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. We partner with 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 putting together an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, aides, volunteers, social workers and clergy, we can serve the needs of our Hospice patients and their families.

Avalon is excellent!
I think that staff has been terrific with my Father. I wish we had known about this facility 2 years ago! I believe he is getting much better care here than his last facility. Thank you for caring attention to the residents.
My Husband was in the nursing home there for about 4 years. I was very satisfied with the care and the attitude that everyone had toward him. I’m in the Garden Homes.
The building is coming along with the remodel its looks nice. The staff is very kind.
The whole staff was wonderful. Our family was treated so nice, words can’t express. Appreciate you all so much!
