Enjoy that at-home feeling with assistance when and where you need it.
As your needs change, your home doesn't have to. American House offers various levels of assistance for those who need it.
Assisted living is a great option for individuals who do not require extensive care, but have difficulty with performing daily activities at home. Peace of mind comes to individuals knowing they are free to live an independent lifestyle, but can also receive support with things like meals, laundry, outings and more.
American House communities can provide assistance with meals, laundry, medication reminders, physical therapy, Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and more. Residents who need additional assistance can choose services a la carte, or our third-party, health care provider can help you create a custom care plan.*
*At select communities, services are made available by an independent, third-party home care company.
A Day in the Life of an Assisted Living Resident
My name is Henry and American House is my home!
In the mornings I need a bit of help to get ready for the day, and I have someone who comes to assist me. The caregivers come to my apartment and lay out my clothes and help me get dressed.
I don’t walk as steady as I used to, and having the extra set of hands is always comforting. After I’m done getting ready I head down to breakfast on my own, and I always make it a point to stop by the concierge desk and pick up the activity schedule for the day. Bingo is my go-to and everyone claims that I’m lucky because I win quite often!
I love music, so I joined American House’s choir and we meet twice a month. We travel to perform at local schools, senior centers, VA hospitals and other places in the surrounding community. I always keep an eye out for when we have live musical entertainment coming to my home too. Friday’s are my favorite! We have happy hour and there’s usually a musician there.

A Day in the Life of a Memory Care Resident
My name’s Kayla, and I’m happy to know my mom is safe at American House!
My mom, Beth, and I don’t have the chance to spend most mornings together, but I take comfort knowing she’s well-tended to. The caregivers have developed a meaningful relationship with her; she often tells me that she loves them like her own.
In the morning, the caregivers assist her with getting ready, and although it takes them extra time, they even help her with her makeup. I know this means a lot to mom. She would never go out without her make-up, and it’s the little things that count.
After breakfast mom loves attending aromatherapy. It sets her up for a calm and relaxed day. Mom’s favorite activity is chair yoga! Chair yoga is normally scheduled right after aromatherapy so it’s a smooth transition for her.
Lunch usually flies by, but the caregivers make sure she stops midday to have a cup of hot tea. The caregivers help her pick what type of tea and she really enjoys the whole process. Dinner is always the main event of the evening. My mom enjoys getting “dolled” up to see her friends and neighbors.
Carefree recovery with resort-style amenities.
American House offers short- or long-term respite care services when you need it most.
When a primary caregiver is unavailable to provide care, a respite stay allows you and your family to have a peace of mind, knowing that help is always close at hand. Respite stays also allow you the opportunity to meet new friends, engage in fun activities and entertaining events.
Respite care is also often used for recovery after surgery or after a discharge from the hospital. By offering assistance with Activities of Daily Living, physical therapy, meals, housekeeping and more, you are able to focus on the most important issue: restoring your health. *
Regardless of the reason for your stay, we can provide the services you need and the resort-style amenities that you’ll enjoy.
* Services are made available by an independent, third-party home care company at select communities.
Compassionate Hospice care in comfortable surroundings. *
American House communities provide Hospice Care, which centers around both the patient and family.
In addition to providing care to individuals reaching the final stages of life, Hospice provides support for families coping with an impending loss of a loved one. American House understands how to treat you and your loved one with kindness, respect and compassion. We’ll be here as long as you need us.
Our team is able to offer the best treatments available, while avoiding a disruptive move or unnecessary invasive treatments, which can cause additional discomfort or worry.
Palliative services, through Hospice, can provide your loved one with customized care, while keeping him or her in familiar, comfortable surroundings.*
