Community That Cares
Community Life at Clover Ridge Place | Maquoketa, Iowa
Living With Friends
We’ve crafted a lifestyle for seniors that engages mind, body, and spirit. We’ve built a community that brings everyone together. We embrace and honor each individual by learning their stories and bringing their dreams to life.
Share a laugh and a conversation over a delicious meal. Create memories with friends on a town trip to see the show, or during a class with your neighbors. Community life at Clover Ridge Place is filled with special moments to be enjoyed together.
At Your Service
A cheerful greeting by name. A bright smile and a comforting pat on the back. Your coffee and newspaper, just the way you like it, at just the right time.
We call it rolling out the Red Carpet—it’s our attention to detail and personalized service that makes each resident and guest at Clover Ridge Place feel valued and cared for. We aim to treat everyone who comes through our doors as though they are the most important person in the world.

Dreams Come True
There’s no time like the present to try a new adventure, revisit memories, or bond with friends and family. Your dream may be big, or small. It may be riding a horse for the first time, attending a sporting event with grandkids, or revisiting a childhood home.
Your dreams are important to us because they are important to you. They are what make you unique.
Our signature Dare To Dream program recognizes the special hopes and aspirations of our residents–and then makes them a reality! We aim to make at least one resident’s dream come true each month in our community.

Staying involved in meaningful activities every day keeps people happy and healthy. The Finest Living Years or FLY program is our personalized approach that encourages and inspires each resident to thrive.
We focus on our residents’ histories, accomplishments, lifestyles, hobbies, interests, and dreams–and use what we learn to craft a customized plan to keep each community member:
- Active in body and mind
- Engaged in the community
- As capable as possible
Stories From Our Community
Alice is 99 years young, and has loved reading from her earliest days. As a young girl, she would lose herself in the stories she read, and that passion for reading has stayed with her ever since. Alice has shared her love for books and learning throughout the years with her family, her kindergarten students at the Catholic school where she taught for over 30 years, and most recently leading a “Reading with Alice” time here at Clover Ridge Place.
Our Life Enrichment Coordinator, Tammy, had an idea for Alice’s Dare To Dream that would involve children from Sacred Heart School. With some help from Alice’s family and the teaching staff at Sacred Heart, and after several months with many moving parts, in the end there was a virtual presentation to all the students. Over 150 books were dedicated with the Dare to Dream Bookplate in honor of Alice at Clover Ridge Place in Maquoketa, Iowa. Alice, her friends from Clover Ridge Place, and her family all gathered to watch on television.
For a decade, Jerry was a dedicated snowplow driver for Linn County. He especially loved removing snow on Ellis Boulevard, along the beautiful and picturesque Cedar River. For Jerry’s Dare To Dream, we partnered with the City of Cedar Rapids to highlight Jerry’s commitment to plowing by taking part in their Paint a Plow program.
For Jerry’s Plow, we created an image of a train in honor of Jerry’s railroad career together with snowflakes and a picture of the Cedar River to remind him of his favorite spot to clear. Jerry was delighted with his beautifully painted plow and the City invited Jerry to ride along on his plow any day.
Connie is a 65-year-old-resident who loves Harley Davidson motorcycles. When Connie sees or hears a Harley coming down the road she lights up like a Christmas tree every time–she can barely contain her excitement. Connie used to ride with her husband when she was younger, and she loves talking about her experiences on the back of a Harley.
She was a part of a group that used to ride each weekend. Connie will tell stories of riding for fundraisers, riding to see the scenery and mostly just riding for fun! For her Dare To Dream, we reached out to the local HOG motorcycle club chapter and surprised Connie with one more ride. Her excitement was beautiful! Connie giggled like we have never seen. Connie put on the leather jacket and helmet, hopped on the back of a bike and rode. While she was on the back of the Harley she never stopped smiling and laughing. Connie’s love for Harleys is special, and it was a joy for everyone involved to bring her dream to life.
