Rehabilitation: The focus of Rehabilitative Services at Clove Lakes is on promoting recovery and returning patients to functional independence as quickly as possible. We have achieved the very highest return rates  to the community through early intervention and aggressive treatment.


Hospice Care: The Hospice Program affirms life. It is our express goal to enable skilled nursing facility  residents in the advanced stages of illness to remain in a familiar and supportive environment while receiving relief from pain and control of symptoms.


Social Services: Our dedicated and skilled social service staff serves as advocate and advisor to the resident and their family. To ensure a smooth transition and adjustment to placement, a social worker is assigned to each resident. Family members can also be accommodated during weekend evening hours. Social Services also coordinates the staff language bank to assist residents, whose primary language is not English, in making their needs known.


To facilitate discharge back to the community, our social workers assist patients and their families in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan, developed on the day of admission. Weekly support and information groups are provided prior to and after returning home.

Dietary: Selective menus empower residents to make their own choices. Residents participate in menu planning through our monthly Menu Committee Meetings, although diet restrictions based on diagnosis may prevail.

Our newly-renovated kitchen uses state-of-the-art trayline and tray systems to promote quality and efficiency in meal service.


Pastoral Care: At Clove Lakes, interdenominational religious services, available through The Pastoral Care Program, play a key role in giving residents a sense of community.  In addition to bringing in religious leaders who conduct worship services in-house, Clove Lakes provides counseling for all religious traditions.  The presence of our chaplain, weaves spirituality into day-to-day life.  The Program allows residents of all faiths to reconnect with their faith through daily Mass, communion or fellowship services. Jewish residents join Rabbi David BenAron each Friday as he conducts a centuries-old tradition of lighting the Shabbat candles and saying the blessings for those present and deceased.  Kosher wine and challah is provided while friends and relatives alike are invited to join in the celebration.  Residents who are frail receive a visit from the Rabbi.  A newly redesigned interfaith Chapel affords residents the opportunity to deepen their relationship with God in a specialized setting.  Since its founding more than thirty years ago, the Pastoral Care Program has helped thousands of residents find a sense of joy in what life provides.
