Clipper Harbor is a wonderful community. Although my relationship is professional I can tell you my interests are emotional. We have had many of our community's residents stay at Clipper Harbor for rehab with wonderful progress! We have had others who have successfully transitioned to Clipper Harbor when they were in need of Long Term Care, and we have even had our future residents thrive utilizing a private Respite stay, to gain the progress they needed to be successful in an Assisted Living or Memory Care environment. Clipper Harbor has proven to be a top notch healthcare facility with people who care and work hard to accommodate whatever situation they can!

The staff and management at Clipper Harbor are really wonderful. They worked closely with both of my parents during their transition from their own home to the assisted living unit. The grounds are lovely, the amenities are good and the frontline staff as well as the leadership have always accommodated my parents needs (and a few wants as well). My family and I are very grateful for the compassion and quality care that Clipper Harbor has shown our parents.

When I first walked in to a large open area, it was cheerful and homey. Staff was pleasant and I enjoyed their smiling welcome. All my questions were answered in a professional manner. During my stay here for rehab the staff consistently provided great care until the day I was able to go home. I often stop in to say "hi" and at times I volunteer to help deliver meal trays and chat with residents.

I have worked with Clipper Harbor since February of this year. During this time I have had the chance to see the compassion the staff have for the residents, families and each other. From business office, social service, administrator, nursing and the rest of the staff are a resource for everyone and care about the service they are providing. It is great how Clipper Harby provides independent and assisted living apartments and residents can age in place by providing skilled nursing, long term care, and a secure memory care all on one campus. They truly provide a continuation of care. Please consider calling or stopping by to tour and talk to the wonderful staff.

My mother was in a one bedroom apartment for almost 6 years, 3 years in independent living and 3 years in assisted living. All of the staff had tremendous compassion and love for her. I always felt that her well-being was their first priority and never worried about her care or safety. She enjoyed the regular bus outings and games where she could win something sweet. I will forever be grateful to all the staff that made this chapter of my mother's life enjoyable.
