I can only speak for the parts of the facilities that I've seen. It has never looks dirty or overly aged and the staff has always been helpful and kind. I visit my grandmother there and she has been in independent living for a couple years now and has also been in rehab twice. Independent Living is much better than Rehabilitation. Rehabilitation of course never has enough staff ( true almost anywhere you go) and is not the most rigorous facility for quick recovery. But it is in-house so my grandmother was able to still be with her friends, which was more important. Since they change food vendor's, the quality has gone down and I have noticed when dining with her that the poor serving staff are forced to constantly apologize for this. ( something they have no control over) this is a very expensive facility and Extras will cost you extra money. But they have multiple stages of care which is what my grandmother wanted so she wouldn't have to get used to a new environment if she needed to change levels of care. It also has a Buy in program so if your money Runs Out you won't be kicked out period I think this brings a lot of Peace of Mind to my grandmother.

Not perfect but they come close. As someone who was a caseworker for adults who couldn't live independently, and visited many, many care settings, I am aware that any facility that has as many residents and as many staff as Clark will have a few issues occasionally. It's the overall day to day care that matters. That said, we are very happy with Clark. My dad, who spent 2 days a week (for many years) visiting people in almost every care setting in the GR area, chose Clark for himself and mom. I think He made a good choice. He has passed on, but mom has been there several years. It's clean, in good repair, has many activities, and staff are kind and competent. We visit frequently at all hours, eat in their dining hall with mom at least once a week, and some of us have spent the night with mom. Mom is mentally all there and is also well satisfied. I'd recommend you consider it.

My parents moved there in the fall of 2005. Mom needed more care. She died in 2007. Dad lived at Clark until 2010 when he passed away. Both received very good care. I was at Clark at all times of day. The staff is caring, the buildings are clean, the food is good. I would recommend Clark. My family found great comfort with the policies of Life Time Care. If a Clark Resident outlives their money they can continue to live at Clark.
