Areas of Need

Living with dignity, compassion and respect.


The Clark Promise (The Benevolent Fund)

One of the greatest fears seniors have is outliving their assets. Even with the wisest care and planning, unforeseen challenges can burden a family beyond belief. As healthcare costs skyrocket and life expectancy continues to rise, it is all too often grim reality. Their funds are depleted.

The Clark Promise gives peace of mind and assurance that if financial challenges arise, Clark will be there—with grace and dignity. Each year, Clark assists over 40 residents through benevolent care with an anticipated annual cost of up to $750,000. Our goal of an endowed fund of $15 million by 2025 will generate enough funds to sustain this promise.


Montessori and Music Therapy

Clark is the first senior community in the United States to implement Montessori for Aging and Dementia, now proudly receiving international recognition and acclaim.

It’s more than a “program”. It’s a philosophy of care which focuses on engaging the older adult in an environment adapted to support memory loss. It enables residents to be independent and lead purposeful lives.

Imagine this—not only are direct caregivers experts in dementia care, Clark’s entire staff and independent residents receive dementia training! The Clark Family takes care of each other.
