Giving back to others. This distinguishing American attribute has resonated at Clark for more than a century. Intuitively, we know that by serving others, we are served as well. We just didn’t know how much until recently. A University of Michigan study has determined that older people who provide practical help or emotional support to others reduce their risk of dying by nearly 60% over their counterparts who do not.
Whether it’s a Clark resident going across the hall to lend a hand or a west Michigan resident coming to Clark on popcorn day, we welcome volunteers in a wide variety of roles. It could be working in the Chatterbox coffee shop or assisting with activities for residents in skilled nursing. Perhaps it’s checking in borrowed books from the library or playing the piano for resident events. If you have the heart, we have the volunteer opportunity.
