Kendal at Oberlin

We are a vibrant life plan community, located in northeast Ohio, just one mile from Oberlin College and less than 30 miles from the Cleveland international airport. Kendal at Oberlin is a community where older adults can thrive and grow.

We are a nonprofit life plan community that offers a wellness-focused, resident-led lifestyle for independent living. When needed, Kendal’s Stephens Care Center provides person-centered care for memory support, assisted living and nursing care.
