Join Clearbrook on Friday, October 18 at the Commons, Clearbrook's largest Intermediate Care Facility (ICF). Home to over 70 individuals, both men and women, the Commons features 24-hour nursing, a recreation room, as well as private or shared rooms with only one other person, and more. With the capacity to serve 85 people, the Commons is home to individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities with medical needs that require around-the-clock nursing care. The open house will showcase all of the updates made to the home in recent years. Attendees will enjoy refreshments, tours, and be entered in a raffle to win a prize.
