John Clarke is Celebrating 40 Years of Caring...

We are celebrating our 40th anniversary at this location which opened in 1980. John Clarke started in 1953 on Shepard Ave in Newport led by Mr. and Mrs. Harold Brown and was home to 24 independent residents. As those residents aged and required more care there was the decision to expand capacity and include nursing care as well. This property at 600 Valley Rd was purchased and constructed and opened in 1980. We have much to be thankful for and proud of over these 40 years. The past staff and current staff have developed a high-quality Nursing and Retirement Center that is very highly regarded on Aquidneck Island and in the Baptist community in Rhode Island.

If you would like to support our ongoing efforts please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.  You generosity will go towards making a meaningful difference in the lives of very deserving people.

Back to Driving and Walking

A big thanks to you and your crew for a great Thanksgiving experience; I don't know how you all do it so cheerfully year after year! You sure made it easy for Maureen Baker's family to have a stress-free 3-generation dinner. Randy and Denise took special care of us in the sunroom during the meal, then Sky did a family photo shoot afterwards. Somehow she managed to catch all of us at our best! (Please tell Pam my mom's hair looked awesome!)

Thanks again for helping us make happy memories.

A Second Chance at Life

I have nothing but happy memories about my 11 days there. I was unable to move on arrival and was walking independently with a walker at discharge. A+!

CHARITABLE DONATIONS ENTHUSIASTICALLY ACCEPTED
We are actively working to raise funds for two special projects right now and would really appreciate your financial support.
The time has come to replace the awnings in front of our community. When residents and visitors come to our facility, they should be welcomed with a vibrant and beautiful aesthetic. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for this important capital project. We are thrilled to tell you that we are off to a great start and have raised $6,200 toward our $25,000 goal. Your charitable gift would be restricted for this purpose.
We are planning a “Food Truck” event in August for our community so that Residents and Staff can go outside and grab a delicious treat from LaCosta Lobster and Taco Truck. We are looking forward to enjoying a summer favorite delivered in a new fashion! Your donation would be utilized to support the cost for Residents and Staff.
If you are interested in either project, please send your tax-deductible donation to John Clarke Retirement Center and make a note of which project (or both!) that you would like to support.
