Dear John Clarke Community,
Warm Holiday Greetings!
During my first year with John Clarke Retirement Center, one thing that stands out above and beyond all else is PASSION. Each person I have met cares deeply and genuinely for patients, family members, caregivers and the mission. I am honored to be in such a committed community. I have a deep appreciation for our dedicated and hardworking staff and volunteers.
As the year comes to a close, John Clarke’s Board of Directors is leading staff through a strategic planning initiative to guide future growth and ensure sustainability. I look forward to reporting throughout the year on the impact this process will have on ensuring that John Clarke remains our community’s trusted provider of senior housing and nursing services.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the community has come together on numerous occasions to ensure that we have a joyous, fulfilling environment. We have incorporated technology to help us connect with loved ones and to the world around us. We enjoyed some amazing events this year including a Food Truck event, numerous entertainers that creatively came up with ways to reach our residents in a safe manner, pizza parties and outdoor gatherings.
We are eagerly looking forward to a vaccine and a time where we are able to freely gather, and welcome family and friends through the doors once again.
Wishing you a happy holiday season,
Joan M. Woods
