Clark is FANTASTIC! Do not believe the rating, Clark it's not a 2 out of 5! It's a 10 out of 80 year old mother was unexpectedly discharged from Blodgett, two days after surgery for a broken hip. We had four hours to find transitional care. I made the mistake of following the advice of the Blodgett staff and going to the government web site to look at the rankings. I took mom to a rehab center that got 4 stars....I was in tears when I left her, and I vowed to either get her into some place else or take her back to my house. At 8:00 that evening, I thank God that I stumbled on Clark, they bent over backward to get mom in the next day. Everyone there was FABULOUS from the time she checked in until she was discharged over a month later. From the outstanding staff, the quality of the facility to the meals and physical therapy services provided Clark was better than I would have been able to provide, no matter where else I looked. I'd be more than happy to discuss Clark in person with anyone that doubts this testimonial. Just ask the staff they'll know who to refer you to, no matter what time of day, I'd be more than happy to tell you what a great place Clark Retirement Community really is....regardless of what other "experts" say about it.

My 96 year old mother has been a resident in the short term rehab unit at Clark for the past two weeks, following a hip fracture. It has been a very positive experience. The most exemplary thing is the staff; they care and anticipate my Mom's needs. Recently, friends stopped in for a visit and expressed how impressed they were with Clark. From the moment they walked in the door they noticed a difference with everyone they met. Staff were friendly and had a smile on their face. After watching an interaction between the staff and my Mom, one of the visitors said, Clark seems to be a "pay it forward" organization. I feel real peace of mind having my Mom at Clark.
