At Clark, we don’t like to think of our residents and staff as socially distant, rather we say we’re physically distanced and socially connected. During the course of the pandemic and associated executive orders from the State of Michigan we have committed to keeping our residents safe and socially engaged.
While, we have had to physically distance for safety, our connection as a community remains strong. Our Life Enrichment Team has gone above and beyond to keep our residents engaged and connected. We are excited to highlight some of the amazing activities at Clark that have continued to keep our residents, families and staff connected.
Spirit Weeks with fun themes like Crazy Hair Day.
Our residents loved celebrating Thanksgiving in September.
Letters and pictures from the community brings our residents and staff cheer!

While are not able to congregate in person, we still have lots of fun as a community with our virtual bingo evenings!
