Peace of mind and compassionate care
Is your loved one’s memory loss impacting their health and safety or making independent living impossible? Clark can help. Get peace of mind with Clark’s innovative Memory Care program. Clark is the first life-plan community in the United States to adopt the Montessori for Aging and Dementia program. Our program is led by certified Montessori practitioners, who empower residents with memory loss to lead independent and purposeful lives. Clark does so by creating meaningful routines, activities based on interest, and an environment with memory cues and supports. Memory care is perfect for families looking for specialized memory and dementia care that addresses their loved one’s health and safety needs while enriching their daily lives.
It’s easy to focus on what has been lost when dementia causes changes in a person you love. However, we like to build upon what is present.
Dementia can cause distress and frustration. We focus on alternative care techniques and therapeutic approaches to reduce this frustration. We try to anticipate the needs of each person before distress settles in.
Memory care typically focuses on physical necessities such as bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. We also focus on enriching and optimizing each resident’s total quality of life.
We foster an environment of continuous learning and education for our staff and caregivers, and provide support and resources to family members and friends. Our goal is to normalize the dementia journey as much as possible for everyone.
