Create your kind of retirement

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Retirement is something that lies in everyone’s future. The big question these days is what do you want your retirement to look like? What do you want to be doing during those years? One place in West Michigan that’s offering a wide variety of options is Clark Retirement Community.

Clark has a variety of options for seniors including assisted and independent living.

One passion very evident at Clark is their love of art. Paintings line the rooms and hallways, donated over the years. Residents also have a chance to participate in art themselves through workshops. There’s a special place within Clark that pays homage to the beginning of art at Clark. It’s the Donna Chase Gallery. Some 2 decades ago, Chase was charged with bringing West Michigan art to Clark, to decorate the hallways. She was successful in bringing in donations of art and money to make it possible. When Clark was considering renovations  for  the space, Chase’s husband who lives at Clark, made a generous donation to create a whole new art gallery.

On May 1, Clark plans to hold a community event for people to learn more about dementia resources. On May 22, it will host an open house with a nationally known physician. The open house is a chance to see the Clark community, talk to staff members, and even take a tour. Clark Retirement Community is located at 1551 Franklin Street SE in Grand Rapids.
