Marllys Clements, Director of Customer Relations

Marllys Clements has a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) from Butler University, a Bachelor’s Degree, also in Marriage and Family Therapy, from Anderson University and an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Anderson University. Her career has focused primarily on families in various transitions and emotional situations. She has extensive experience working directly with families and individuals dealing with emotional decisions and life-changing transitions, from vocational rehabilitation services for disabled adults, to private practice therapy, to adoption services. In addition to direct client care, her administrative duties as Executive Director have included complying with state, federal, and international licensure regulations.

Marllys’s personal experiences of helping her own family balance the needs of caring for their aging loved ones has given her a strong desire to walk alongside other families as they navigate these difficult life transitions. She understands how hard it is for the elderly to have to ask for help and to realize that they can no longer do everything they used to do. She also understands how it feels to be the adult child who now has to take over the decision-making role for a parent, to provide personal care they never thought they’d have to do for their dad or mom, and to watch a parent slip away and leave this earth. She helped her family navigate through home health services, assisted living communities, rehabilitation services, memory care facilities, and even hospice care. She appreciated each and every one that helped her and provided such good care for her family. Her passion today is to give back in some way. As Director of Operations, Marllys is excited to be a part of Clover Senior Care, a team of caring individuals focused on assisting seniors and their families to determine the types of assistance needed to live safely, happily, and as independently as possible.
