Memory Care

Dementia and Memory Care at Clark

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.

Memory Care is available at our Keller Lake and Franklin communities.

Dementia and Memory Care at Clark

Memory Care might be a good fit if your loved one is:

  • experiencing confusion and disorientation that puts them in harm’s way
  • declining in physical health and/or hygiene
  • wandering off
  • experiencing increased health issues
  • living in deteriorating conditions

Our philosophy of dementia care

  • Focus on what is possible

    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. 

  • Reduce frustration

    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. 

  • Engage and stimulate

    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.

  • Educate

    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.
