Quality Care Services

Stacy Terrell, Chief Health Services Officer, notes “At Kendal at Oberlin we work very hard every day and year-round to provide the highest quality of care. We continually review our systems and review and update policies. We constantly audit our documentation and our care delivery. With The Kendal Corporation, we conduct mock surveys with outside eyes to examine our processes and point out our weaknesses. 

And most importantly, we continually challenge ourselves to strive for excellence in everything we do and in the care we provide.” This effort certainly shows in our surveys and our satisfaction ratings.

Daily life in the Stephens Care Center is enhanced by the effort of numerous volunteers. Many are fellow Kendal residents or students from Oberlin College. Creative Arts Therapies and engaging programs are available daily. Intergenerational activities with the children from the Kendal Early Learning Center are a delight – so many smiles to share.
