Dementia Care

An Award-Winning Approach to Dementia Care

Award-Winning Dementia Care in Grand Rapids

Memory loss presents a challenging chapter in life, both for the person who is experiencing it and their loved ones. Clark is at the forefront of innovation in memory care and has developed significant expertise and award-winning programs that focus on preserving the identity of each person.

As the only life plan community in the United States that has adopted the Montessori for Aging and Dementia program, we engage and stimulate residents with activities that are suited to their interests and skills. This approach focuses on creating a secure environment filled with cues and memory supports that empower each individual to thrive as they are able. Family members can count on the Clark team to provide the education and resources necessary to help with this journey as much as possible.

There are two levels of dementia care available at Clark, dependent on each individual’s stage: assisted living and skilled nursing.

Assisted living dementia care includes:

  • Two locations: Clark at Franklin and Clark at Keller Lake
  • A private room and bath with temperature controls
  • Individualized activity plans appropriate to each person’s abilities and interests
  • Gentle reminders and assistance as needed with daily activities
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • Restaurant-style dining, offering choice and comfort
  • Group events and outings to restaurants, cultural destinations and events
  • The Clark Commitment: our guarantee that you always have a home within the Clark community, even if your funds are depleted through no fault of your own 

In addition, skilled nursing dementia care is available for those needing a considerable amount of assistance with activities of daily living. 

Skilled nursing dementia care includes:

  • Additional medical care as needed
  • A safe, secure environment
  • Supervised access to outdoor gardens
  • Several common areas within the building that can be accessed by the resident, such as recreation rooms and sitting areas
