Our Staff

Melanie Klover

House Owner

My family, husband and two children, live in Shawnee, Kansas. Nine years ago we moved back home to Kansas from Spokane, Washington. I am the oldest of six children and now enjoy living in the near vicinity of my parents and siblings. I strongly believe in and value family commitment. Because of my strong family commitment I want to provide a family living environment for seniors.

I have been an Occupational Therapist for 23 years. As an Occupational Therapist, I have specialized in helping people deal with the effects of illness and injury on their ability to manage daily life. By looking at a person holistically, I adapt and individualize environments so that it allows my client to function at his/her highest level of Independence. I have worked in the arena of senior care in a variety of setting including rehab, skilled nursing, and home health. I have spent the past 12 years working in home health where I have had the chance to come to understand seniors need for optimal performance in a home environment.

Over my career I have gained a passion for caring for seniors and have extensive knowledge of principals of aging in place, Alzheimers and dementia care, and an understanding of the benefits of a therapeutic environment.

Donna Brown

House Manager

My name is Donna Brown and I currently hold the position of house manager. I spent most of my early childhood in California. We later moved to NY and after graduation, I moved to KS where I met my husband Mike. We have one son, Chad. I spend my free time involved in animal rescues and weekends at the lake with my family. A big part of my life involves the love of horses (or any animal) and I enjoy training horses and teaching others to ride.

My passion for seniors started as a child. I remember my dear grandmother coming to visit and how I felt a calling and a desire to be beside her in whatever she needed to feel safe and loved. As an adult, my passion continued and I knew in my heart that providing support and kindness to seniors would always be an area in my life I would want to share. Throughout the years, I have gained valued experience working in different areas of senior care. These areas include long term care, rehab, assisted living and home plus environments. My detailed areas of flexibility include life enhancement, CNA/CMA, medical records, restorative and social services. I have recently obtained my senior care operators license through the state of Kansas. As the house manager, Clover Care has allowed me the opportunity to care for seniors in the “home” setting, where I can maintain a close relationship with our residents and families. Clover Cares’ Home Plus environment provides outstanding care where I can utilize my skills and promote life long relationships that maintain the dignity and growth of our residents and allowing us the time to build strong connections.

Laura Garrison

House Chef

I have been married for 25 years and have five kids. Cooking has always been my passion. I had a small catering company out of my home for six years and worked as a baker at a pie shop for 5 years before coming to Clover Care in November 2015. 

I get great joy here at Clover Care every day, making comforting , home cooked meals from scratch for the residents. It always brightens my day when they thank me and tell me what nice meals I make for them.


The care our mom has received at Clover Care has been nothing short of exceptional. The country setting helps to add to the inviting atmosphere in which our mom has thrived. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and caring. Clover Care has made a difficult situation seem like a natural transition in life. We would recommend it to anyone looking for long term care of a loved one.
