Departmental Planning

  • In daily operational calls with The Kendal System, emphasis has been put on advance planning by each department to create staff teams (A, B, even C) so in the event a department is hit by COVID-19, it does not infect the whole department. In addition, departments are cross-training jobs so adjustments can be made as necessary with anticipated illness in a pandemic. Every employee is essential (unless approved to be away for medical or other descriptions covered by pandemic laws)  to assure Kendal’s ability to meet the changing demands during this pandemic with 345 residents on campus.

Housekeeping Update

All Kendal staff members are screened each day before they are allowed to report for duty.  However, in this extraordinary time, we want to provide residents with solutions that best meet their wants and needs.  In response to many resident suggestions, we are prepared to offer residents any of the following three housekeeping options. Please contact Crystal Hall at 775-9199 or email her at cyhall@kao.kendal.org to tell her what option you select.

  • Standard service with our enhanced infection control procedures. We are sourcing fabric masks to provide our staff and using disinfectant cleaner on all floors and high-touch surfaces.
  • “Express Clean” service plan to minimize in-unit time so that the resident can step out while we clean and sanitize essential areas and high-touch surfaces.
  • The elimination of all housekeeping services available in two-week increments. The resident would have to opt back in prior to their next normally scheduled appointment.

Dining Update

  • We have received many positive notes of thanks and gratitude, and I want to assure everyone that these do get shared with the whole team; however, please don’t hesitate to let us know when you experience a problem or have a suggestion gzehe@kao.kendal.org.  We are learning and refining each day, and we use your feedback in our process improvement.
  • Today we learned that inclement weather really slows things down!  We did receive quite a few rain ponchos last week, but still did not have the heart to send staff out into the earlier downpour.  Some residents thought we had forgotten them and called.  We want to say we appreciated it and would rather have you call as soon as you think you were missed rather than later. Right now, deliveries will begin around 11am and should be finished by 2pm.

Coronavirus Viability

Thank you Alan Lockwood and Don Parker for sharing.

  • A contribution in the March 18 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine provides the following information about the persistence of the coronavirus. For reference, half-life is the time, in hours, for half of the virus to become inactive. The 95% credible interval (upper boundary) includes 95% of the expected cases.

persistence of the coronavirus on surfaces

“The issue about the viability of the virus, whether it’s in the air or on different types of surfaces like plastic, steel, or copper…in the air we’re talking about minutes, but on surfaces it could be even 72 hours—particularly plastic.”

C-PAP Machines

  • We have an acceptable water supply for your C-PAP machines. If you were not contacted but still need water, please let the Health and Wellness Clinic know.

Post-Op Appointment Here by Way of Technology

  • Kendal is pleased to report the Stephens Care Center had their first successful post-op follow-up visit using technology for a Stephens Care Center resident on Friday. Our nurse practitioner was able to participate with the assessment, leading the way with more to follow. Mercy, the Cleveland Clinic, and others are offering more and more appointments this way.

Grocery Options

  • Confirm Orders with Donna Baznik. If you are able to get a delivery order confirmed, please let Donna know, as she is assigning volunteer grocery carriers. Her email is donnabaznik@gmail.com
  • Walmart fills a big need with their capacity for online, use of credit card, and known inventory. We are close to a 2nd option (IGA) and we’ll need both to meet our need. Stay tuned.

Discount Drug Mart

  • We are testing a maximum of 30 orders next week, spaced out 5 days. This is for non-food items. Residents have been turning in orders (no more than 3 items per resident) since Saturday morning. Purchases will be put on your Kendal bill. We realize this is a limited number of people being served but will repeat it, if it is successful. Your patience is appreciated.

March 27, 2020: Update to Residents

Calm, Proactive Preparedness

Governor Mike DeWine Daily Press Conference

  • Governor DeWine’s daily press coverages are available for viewing.
  • 1,137 confirmed cases in Ohio, 270 new cases since yesterday (as of 11am)
  • 55 confirmed cases in Lorain County, 11 new cases since yesterday (as of 2pm)
  • Due to limited test kit supplies, only the seriously ill hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms and health care workers/first responders with symptoms are being tested.
  • 19 confirmed deaths in Ohio, age range 58-93
  • 24% of total cases are hospitalized.  9% of the total cases are in Intensive Care.
  • 16% of all cases are health care workers.
  • For more information: Ohio Department of Health and Lorain County Public Health

Delivered Meals

  • Some residents have reported while they appreciate their daily delivered meals, they either can’t eat all the food in one sitting or in some cases have not cared for some of the food and did not eat it.  Please discard all food received after 2 days in the refrigerator for food safety and your own protection. When in doubt, throw it out.
  • Due to the pandemic, sharing food items such as extra unused salad dressing packets should not be given to others after being received as part of a delivered meal. It is best to discard whatever you choose not to eat to maintain sanitation and prevent your own or another’s becoming ill.
  • If you have a comment about your meals, please send an email to Greg Zehe, or write a brief note and leave it at the front desk to be placed in his Administration mailbox. Greg reads every note he receives and conveys your valued comments to his culinary team who work hard for your dining satisfaction.

Recycling

  • Many residents have received a notice from the City of Oberlin that Republic Services have been reducing residential pickups and that recycles are not to be separated at this time.  This notice does not apply to Kendal since we are classified as a health care organization.  The sorting of recycles materials does continue on this campus.

Grocery Items and Other Shopping

  • Our trial run of Online Grocery Order went pretty well but only about 14 residents were able to get a “pick-up” time slot. We will do this again with Monday order (midnight and later) and pick-up on Tuesday. Directions this time will be put in in-house mail boxes who did not get it last time. We will repeat a Thursday order and pick-up Friday next week too.

Discount Drug Mart

  • We would like to give  30 residents (first to submit an order form)  an opportunity to place an order for next week. We ask that you prioritize  no more than 3 items per person as a trial. We will spread the orders out to 6 per day make it less burdensome for Discount Drug Mart. Look for an order form in Heiser sometime on Saturday that should be turned back in to the front desk.

Pharmacy Orders

  • While Discount Drug Mart continues to deliver to Kendal,  other pharmacies are doing it by mail. If the drugs are narcotics they cannot be mailed and have to be picked up. If you have such a circumstance for CVS, please communicate this to the Health and Wellness Clinic.

  • For more information: Ohio Department of Health and Lorain County Public Health

Kendal Residents Respond to Reported Campus Exiting Residents

  • Everyone is understanding that the “hard closure” is difficult, a significant sacrifice. All must understand we are all in this together, as one community, as one Kendal at Oberlin family.  We are dependent on one another–residents and staff members alike–to make and keep Kendal safe. This requires everyone to be extremely vigilant.
  • Kendal residents have responded loudly and clearly, expressing “anger” and horror at some fellow residents’ “disregard for the safety of their friends and neighbors” by leaving campus, as some have been witnessed doing.  Equally voiced was, “What is Kendal going to do?”  The purpose of the “hard closure” is to protect Kendal, its residents, and its staff members.  This effort requires the hard work and sacrifice of every resident and staff member.  When residents circumvent this process by walking off campus, the entire community is put at risk.  Residents willfully violating the “hard closure” will be required to find alternative housing off campus until the “hard closure” has been lifted from campus. This is necessary in order to maintain the integrity of the safe zone we are creating to keep residents and staff as protected as possible during this pandemic.
  • KORA will be sending an official communication to all residents tomorrow regarding violations of the “hard closure” of our campus.

Sanitizer for Kitchen Counters and Bath

  • If you have run out or are running low on a sanitizing solution to clean and sanitize your kitchen and bathroom, Kendal is mixing up an approved solution using the CDC recipe of bleach and water. The problem is we cannot obtain empty spray bottles. If you have a thoroughly rinsed/cleaned spray bottle of at least 12 ounces or more and need such a cleaner, we can fill your empty spray bottle for this purpose.  We will put a box for bottles for this request near the Heiser mailboxes. You must label your bottle with your name and apartment or cottage number.

Grocery Orders

  • Our first grocery order trial with Walmart will be delivered on Friday, but we found the number of persons who could place an order in the available slots was limited to about 14 and pickup times were filled by 7:30am. We will accept another group of residents to submit orders on Monday for a Tuesday pickup. The residents who were successful placed the order between midnight and 7am. The system does not allow you to request an order any more than one (1) day ahead of pickup. We are attempting to work with management to get more available slots.

 Take-Out Orders

  • Ordering from local restaurants and having meals delivered at the Kendal entrance is just not manageable. We understand the desire to support local businesses during this difficult time.

Can You Spare Your Extra Thermometer?

  • We are in need of thermometers for those who don’t have one in Independent Living, and if you have an extra thermometer you can donate, or know of someone who has a spare, it is greatly appreciated as these are also in very short supply from our vendors. Our goal is to have every IL resident have a thermometer to take their own temperature every day.

 Centering in this Time of Distress

  • Indira Palekar will be offering a series via Zoom called: Centering in this Time of Distress – Tapping into Our Inner Strengths and Innate Abilities. The first session is Monday, March 30, 3:30 to 4pm. Contact Social Services, kpreston@kao.kendal.org or kpeters@kao.kendal.org, to have the Zoom link emailed to you. (This is open to residents and staff.)

Jameson Drillers at Kendal Monday, March 30

  • Jameson Drillers will be making the necessary connections on wells previously drilled for cottages being readied for occupancy near Lot 5.

Kendalites Spotted Off Campus

  • There have been reports of Kendal residents spotted off-campus at Discount Drug Mart, IGA, and the Oberlin Public Library. As hard as it is, we are requesting that all residents honor the “hard closure” of the campus. Such activity puts you, your neighbors, and the Kendal staff at risk. The COVID-19 virus is spreading rapidly in our area.  If you will not do it for yourself, please remain on campus for your neighbors and friends at Kendal.

Getting a Handle on Flattening the Curve of COVID-19

Setting a New Routine

We have all found ourselves in a new reality, sacrificing everything from gathering time with friends to going to a concert performance to dining out.  Setting a new routine, a temporary new normal, is one more way for us to take care of ourselves through this pandemic.  Here are some ideas from the Ohio Department of Health:

  • Create a schedule. Find an online template or app that provides a way to list activities for every hour of the day or make one of your own. Schedule something at least every hour.
  • Establish times for waking up, meals and snacks, going to bed, and sleeping.
  • Get ready for the day, bath or shower, brush your teeth, get dressed.
  • Set start and end times for things like hobbies, meditating, self-care, exercise, taking walks, bicycling, reading, playing electronic games, walking/playing with pets, cooking, gardening or yard work, listening to favorite music, watching TV, journaling, movie time, and other leisure activities.
  • Schedule time for learning and discovery, research new cultures, languages, philosophies, art, travelogues, and more.
  • Make time for breaks.
  • Make sure to schedule something that will bring you joy every day.
  • Build in time for reaching out to family, friends, neighbors, and others through phone calls, video chats and connecting through social media.

Health Services

  • Mercy Health was on campus today, performing N95 Fit Testing with the Stephens Care Center and Health and Wellness Center teams.
  • Health Services team members now have their own personal N95 respirator, goggles, instructions on their care and usage, and a tote bag to keep them clean and available.
  • High Praise: the Mercy Team gave praise for all the preparations by Kendal, saying we are one of the most prepared organizations they have worked with so far.

 Newspaper Deliveries

  • Newspaper deliveries start tomorrow with resident volunteers. The TV Guide in the Sunday Plain Dealer is a separate order. If YOU receive the TV Guide, please let the front desk know so we can get it to you.

Your Car Battery During “Hard Close

Suggestions from Joe Colucci, retired GM

  • The simplest advice is to leave it parked, don’t start it.  With warming weather, battery life will not be compromised.  Most recent model cars automatically shut off all electrical devices after the key is removed.
  • Periodically driving the car around Kendal for a short distance will not do much to charge a battery and might further drain it.  If you feel compelled to do so, it might do more good for you getting out of your cottage/apartment than it will for the battery.

Centering in this Time of Distress

  • Indira Palekar will be offering a series via Zoom called: Centering in this Time of Distress – Tapping into our inner strengths and innate abilities. The first session is Monday, March 30, 3:30 to 4pm. Contact Social Services, kpreston@kao.kendal.org or kpeters@kao.kendal.org, to have the Zoom link emailed to you. (This is open to residents and staff.)

Online Grocery Orders

  • Kendal is partnering with an online organization that is experienced in online grocery orders that can take your orders using a credit card and facilitate grouping the orders together for pick-up by Kendal Transportation on Friday evening. We are launching this as a trial this week for a limited number of orders. An introduction has been sent just to our Kendal email groups for the trial week. We will expand it next week to all residents who are willing to set up a special account. If you have an existing Walmart account you will need to use another email or it will not allow you create your unique name that includes the word Kendal and your unit #.

Wellbeing Calls

  • Staff are making calls to all IL residents and referring concerns to the Health and Wellness Clinic for follow-up. Thank you for taking your weekly call from your new Kendal staff friend.

Department Planning

  • All departments are reviewing the necessary pandemic planning for a reduced workforce should their department be impacted due to those who have to be quarantined or who have medical conditions not qualifying them to be on campus. Kendal Corp is guiding many of these steps to assure the appropriate preparation and plan in place.

Zoom Technology

  • The Kendal system has been working to set us up with Zoom Technology using an enterprise license that meets HIPAA protections. There is no time limit to sessions or a limited number of participants. Kendal at Oberlin will soon be naming hosts (including a KORA-named host) that can begin to bring groups together virtually. Some of this may be coordinated with a recently named point person for Resident Engagement, Joyce Benjamin. Training for our key leaders will be offered next week in a special webinar by KCorp.  Stay tuned.

Donations of Supplies

  • Appreciation is extended for the voluntary donations of supplies that have started to flow in by residents and community friends including masks, gloves, elastic, etc.  We are a long way off from the peak expected so more will be accepted with thanks.

Thank You

  • Thank you for your cooperation with Kendal at Oberlin’s “Hard Close”. We know this is a significant sacrifice for all Kendal residents as we remember our goal, to play our part in “flattening the curve” and thereby minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our campus.

Front Entrance and Exit

  • Our new process has gone relatively smoothly as the word is out about Kendal’s need to do a “hard close” to prevent community spread of COVID-19.  Neighboring joggers and pet walkers are being politely turned away. Residents have been doing an awesome job of getting critically important medical appointments communicated to the Health and Wellness Clinic so written authorizations can be provided.

Health and Wellness Clinic Specialty Services

  • Indira Palekar, Psychologist, has openings for this coming Thursday, March 26.  She will be using a telemedicine technology to connect with her appointments, and she will not be on campus. Residents with appointments will be contacted ahead of time to guide them through an easy set-up process. To schedule a time with Indira, please call the Health and Wellness Clinic at 440-775-9819.

Stephens Care Center Residents, Staying Connected

  • Creative Arts Therapy has been working  with Information Technology to explore and deploy different technologies to assist Stephens Care Center (SCC) residents to stay connected.  An email went out to SCC families this afternoon.  If you did not receive it or would like more information about staying connected through technology to those you know in the SCC, contact Michele Tarsitano-Amato at mtars@kao.kendal.org or 440-775-9890.

Housekeeping

  • Our cleaning teams are pleased to be able to keep your cleaning schedules. Just be sure if you are not feeling well that you alert Crystal Hall at cyhall@kao.kendal.org or 440-775-9199 so she can reassign her staff and schedule you for a later time.

Personal Protective Equipment, We are Still Building Reserve Supply

  • Kendal is continuing to educate the public on the importance of not hoarding PPE needed by area health care providers. We’ve been pleased to receive donated gloves from other businesses and are even sharing them with other local providers.  Bravo and cheers for Lydia Fox, a volunteer in the community who is starting to make 345 washable fabric masks for residents and staff!  Rosemary Leshinski, mother of Laundry staff member Dawn, is making masks, too.  What is in short supply is ¼” elastic that can loop around ears to hold the mask in place. If you have any to spare, let the front desk know and we can arrange a pickup.

Connecting with Facility Services

  • We ask that you continue to turn in work order needs by way of WorxHub or a call to FS or the receptionist. Please do not walk personally to the FS building to connect with staff. Equipment, supplies, vehicles and more make this an off-limit zone for residents. This is for risk safety. 

Wind Screens

  • A request was made to roll up the wind screens, but with winter’s chill still very much present for many days, this labor-intensive job will not be done until FS staff is available later in spring.

ATM Banking with Northwest Bank

  • Be assured our ATM is being replenished with cash and you have the option to make deposits in the same location.

  • 442 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Ohio
  • 5 new cases, total of 24 confirmed cases in Lorain County
  • Due to limited test kit supplies, only the seriously ill hospitalized with COVID-19 symptoms and health care workers/first responders with symptoms are being tested.

  • For more information: Ohio Department of Health and Lorain County Public Health

What the “Stay at Home” order means for Kendal Employees and Contractors

  • As a long-term care facility encompassing a continuum of care with multiple levels of care and serving a vulnerable population, it remains “all-hands-on-deck” for all Kendal employees. Please know most employees are doing duties other than their routine tasks in order to meet the significantly changing demands of this COVID-19 challenge, including a “hard close”. Administration and department heads are continually engaged in determining staff duties. There are no non-essential staff, recognizing the job demands will continue to shift.
  • There are established criteria for staff that are exceptions due to health considerations.
  • The contractors on campus are those who are completing cottage renovations promised to contracted residents with move-in dates. All other construction work not yet started has been temporarily suspended.
  • When new residents move in, a strict 14-day quarantine at home is required and has been communicated with all move-in planning.
  • All staff members and contractors on campus are being screened for fever and other COVID-19 symptoms daily.  In addition, everyone is being reminded that social distancing, 6-foot spacing, is to take place throughout campus and with everyone.

Health and Wellness Clinic Specialty Services

  • All on-campus appointments for Audiology, Dentistry, Optometry and Podiatry are all postponed until further notice.
  • Indira Palekar, Psychologist, is looking at telemedicine options. More details will be forthcoming.

Ensure the Health and Wellness Clinic Has Your Updated Medical Information

  • During this pandemic, it is vital that all residents that have utilized a non-Kendal primary care physician have provided Kendal with their most recent health history including current medications and diagnoses.
  • All residents need to ensure a summary from any recent visit to a specialist or medical treatment/surgery is provided to the Health and Wellness Clinic.
  • Transportation arrangements in Lorain County can be done by Kendal, a spouse, or family member. We are sorry, but residents cannot drive a “resident friend”.
  • For both of the above, please contact Natasha Miller, Health and Wellness Clinic Administrative Assistant, at 440-775-9819 to make an appointment to drop off updated information.

Off-Campus Medical Appointments

  • All routine off-campus appointments must be postponed during this “hard closure”. Off- campus medical appointments that are exceptional and extraordinary such as for lifesaving treatments and other appointments of critical importance to your health, must be reviewed for approval prior to your trip.  Please email Shenell Hinton, RN and Julie Carpenter, RN for a review of your specific need. You will need their written approval to leave campus with specific dates and times.

Grocery Arrangements

  • Currently, residents may count on Kendal in-house grocery orders delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays with orders placed 24 hours ahead. After completing the order form, drop it off at the front desk. We do not want email orders to be lost in cyber space.
  • By next week, we hope to have in place additional options for a weekly delivery from Drug Mart (sundries, not food), IGA (limited grocery items) and Walmart ( broader grocery availability).

Prescriptions will continue to be delivered regularly from Drug Mart and now from CVS for their customers.

Time is of the essence and we have to buy time by the trong actions being taken. We are all in this together, in a unique way…we have to get angry at COVID-19…this is a silent invader; we must give no help to the enemy.
  • Amy Acton, MD, Director of Ohio Department of Health statements today: We have to do everything in our power to protect everyone on the front line, health care workers and EMTs, to ensure people will be there to protect us.  We have to protect them to protect us by following this order. Don’t be afraid, be determined!  I see a future full of hope, but we have to act.
  • Coronavirus updates at the Ohio Department of Health.

Grocery Shopping Options
