Clark at Home Becomes Atrio Home Care on April 1, 2017

Clark, Holland Home, and Resthaven have decided to partner together and combine our home care services under the new name of Atrio Home Care. 

Our decision to collaborate was natural.  Our nonprofit organizations already share similar missions, philosophies and ways of approaching senior care.

In establishing Atrio as a faith-based nonprofit, we have borrowed the best that Clark, Holland Home, and Resthaven have to offer to establish a new non-profit that is better than the sume of its parts.  Together, we have a combined heritage of more than 300 years of delivering compassionate, skilled and quality care to seniors.  Atrio will allow us to provide better care, more resources and a broader range of services to those we assist. 

Click here to learn more about how Clark at Home will become Atrio Home Care on April 1, 2017.
