Clark Meadows Frequently Asked Questions

Enriched living is a combination of housing, personalized supportive services and health care for individuals who may require assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and medication management. It is designed to accommodate changing needs, while maximizing dignity, autonomy, privacy, independence, safety and choice. Staff is available 24 hours a day to meet both scheduled and unscheduled needs.
Residents maintain a level of independence while enjoying assistance, as needed, with Activities of Daily Living.
The staff of Clark Meadows includes a Program Manager, Lifestyle Coordinator, a Nurse/Care Coordinator, Case Manager and personal care aides who will help with daily needs.
A single monthly fee covers all services provided by the community. This fee varies with apartment style and location. There is no entrance fee. Phone is a DOH requirement and therefore an additional charge. Internet in the apartments is extra as well.
No. Unlike some communities with multi-tiered pricing, we have adopted a flat rate structure that includes all services outlined in the contract.
Clark Meadows rates may be increased moderately in the future with a 30-day notice to residents. Any adjustment will be based on a cost-of-living increase as well as inflation.
