Community Updates Week of 7/27/2020

July 31, 2020: Update to Residents

Calm, Proactive Preparedness

Updated County Map- Good News for Urban Areas, Bad News for Rural Areas

Lorain remains Level 2, orange and Medina and Cuyahoga at Level 3. 

There remain no Level 4, purple counties, indicating highest level of risk. As a reminder, as a safety precaution, if there are any Level 4 purple counties, visitors will be restricted from those counties. Visit Harvard Global Health Institute to view other counties in other states. Visitors are restricted on the Kendal at Oberlin campus from all Level 4 counties, including other states. 

The Coming Week

We hope to give an update on readiness to move to Phase 2. This assumes our last tests from Mercy Allen are still negative and the larger communities hold steady at Level 2. There will still be documentation requirements as you leave the campus. While you don’t have to have a “pass” submitted in advance or to an email address, you will be asked to use a “paper pass” to give the entrance staff that will record your name(s), unit #, destination and time of departure. Upon returning, you will be asked if you added any destinations and a time will be recorded for re-entry. The paper pass is necessary to allow for more time-efficient exits and entrances and still have a paper trail for contact tracing. More to come next week as the added details and fewer restrictions/examples are spelled out in the Phase 2 Re-Opening Plan.

Saturday Evening, Outside Live Music 6-8pm

The Aranovskaya Duo (violin and viola) will be playing a concert for interested residents Saturday evening from 6 – 8pm. The venue is unusual. They will play in the area between the two black iron gates near cottages 220 and 221 in Phase 2. You are welcome to come and go as you please. Bring your own chairs, wear masks, and keep proper physical distance at all times.

Monday, Centering with Indira Palekar

New Sit and Chat Spot

A new location for informal conversations is being established. Next Monday four new wooden lawn chairs will be placed in the shaded lawn on the east side of the covered entrance into Heiser. Access to this location will be via an entranceway adjacent to the bicycle rack. All are welcome to use this area to relax and enjoy casual conversation. It will be available on a come-and-go basis, not a reserved location. Masks are to be worn with proper distancing at all times.

Alone and Sharing Groups – (repeating)

Recognizing that the pandemic restrictions may be particularly stressful for Kendal’s single residents, a group of us are creating opportunities where five residents with a facilitator can share ideas about surviving, and even thriving, during Covid-19. Residents who would like to join one of these groups can contact Dianne Haley, Robin Laurén, or Anne Palmer.

 Exciting News from the Kendal Early Learning Center

logo - A Certified Nature Explore Classroom

There are few early learning centers that offer the campus wide resources found at Kendal. This week Jeni Hoover announced they are once again certified as a Nature Explore Classroom, now in entering their 8th year. This outdoor classroom has been a model for other organizations.

  • United Way is pleased to have Kendal approved as the lead agency for OberlinKids, a collaborative, now 7-years old that operates under a steering committee of about 15 local agencies focused on kindergarten readiness from birth to 5 years of age. Jeni Hoover has worked with this organization since inception and especially works well with executive director Jennifer Keathley. They have a staff of 1.5 FTE’s. 
  • Oberlin Kids just received notice they will share a 4-year grant of about $400,000 from the Ohio Department of Education (thank you Gov. DeWine) as part of a collaborative with other United Way literacy collaboratives serving birth-age 5. This is impacting grant that will assure focus on literacy for children and professional development for staff. The other two programs sharing in this grant are from Lorain and Elyria.
  • New Website being launched- Jeni Hoover initiated new website development for the Early Learning Center working with other Kendal affiliates to have common branding and more efficiencies. Once the site is open, we’ll share the web address you can see how engaging and colorful it is for visitors, especially parents of our toddlers. During the pandemic, many parents are scrambling to find suitable, and open centers to meet their needs.

July 29, 2020: Update to Residents

Calm, Proactive Preparedness

Staff COVID Testing Results-99.6% Negative!  THANK YOU STAFF!!! 

On Tuesday, July 21, 229 Kendal at Oberlin staff members were tested for COVID-19 by the Ohio National Guard. All 229 tests have now been completed and the results are in. We are pleased to inform you that 228 of the 229 tests came back negative, a 99.6% negative rate and a 0.4% positivity rate, compared to other communities being tested by the Ohio National Guard that are ranging between 1-2% positivity.

As we shared on Monday, the positive finding was a staff member who was on leave and under COVID surveillance already, and had been off our work schedule for several weeks prior to the National Guard testing due to a family exposure who tested positive for COVID-19. Our staff member while on leave did have a minor symptom but has since been symptom-free and doing very well. We are working very closely with Lorain County Public Health to guide us to determine when this staff member can safely return to work. Neither Kendal at Oberlin nor Lorain County Public Health have assessed any residents or staff members to have been at risk.

We are encouraged that our COVID infection rate among staff members was remarkably low and that our surveillance protocols were engaged and working, keeping residents and staff members safe.

A BIG THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF OUR STAFF MEMBERS FOR THEIR COMMITMENT TO KEEPING THEMSELVES, THEIR FAMILIES, AND KENDAL COVID-SAFE!

We know this is only a snapshot in time, this was what Kendal at Oberlin staff looked like on July 21, 2020. Yesterday it was announced that the Ohio Department of Health will require all licensed communities (our Stephens Care Center) throughout the State to conduct testing of all their staff every two weeks. This will involve routine 2-week testing that is still under planning including vendors, supply of testing kits and pricing. We will update the community as this testing plan is created.

Kendal at Oberlin will continue to maintain all COVID-19 infection control standards and protocols along with the daily screening of all staff, contracted workers, and outdoor Stephens Care Center visitors.

Recognizing that the pandemic restrictions may be particularly stressful for Kendal’s single residents, a group of us are creating opportunities where five residents with a facilitator can share ideas about surviving, and even thriving, during Covid-19.

An Amazing Two-letter Word

A reminder that one word in the English language that can be a noun, verb, adjective, adverb and preposition. 
 
UP 
 
Read until the end…You’ll laugh. 

This two-letter word in English has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that word is ‘UP.’ It is listed in the dictionary as an [adv], [prep], [adj], [n] or [v]. 
 
It’s easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? 
 
At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver, warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and fix UP the old car. 
   
At other times, this little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. 
 
To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special. 
  
And this UP is confusing: A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP.

We open UP a store in the morning, but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP! 
 
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look UP the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4 of the page and can add UP to about 30 definitions. 
   
If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don’t give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. 
 
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out, we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, the earth soaks it UP. When it does not rain for a while, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I’ll wrap it UP, for now…

My time is UP! 
    
Oh…One more thing: What is the first thing you do in the morning and the last thing you do at night? 
 
U
P!
 
Did that one crack you UP? 
 
Don’t screw UP. Send this on to everyone you look UP in your address book…Or not…it’s UP to you.  
 
Now I’ll shut UP!


July 27, 2020: Update to Residents

Calm, Proactive Preparedness

Residents, staff and SCC families have been sent a more detailed letter early this evening about our testing results. The letter has been sent by email or by hard. As promised, we will have complete transparency regarding an COVID results at Kendal.

Stephens Care Center Employee on Leave Tests Positive for COVID-19

As communicated previously, last Tuesday, July 21, we conducted campus-wide COVID-19 testing of all our Kendal at Oberlin staff members administered by the Ohio National Guard. This represented a statewide goal of testing all nursing home employees throughout the state’s 960+ nursing homes. Statewide, the average positivity result rate on these tests has been 1-2%.

We started receiving results of the tests over the weekend. With now having received over 200 negative test results, we learned today that one of our Stephens Care Center (SCC) staff members has tested positive for COVID-19. This was a staff member who has been off our work schedule for several weeks prior to the National Guard testing due to a family exposure who tested positive for COVID-19. Our staff member while on leave did have a minor symptom but has since been symptom-free and doing very well. The research has indicated there are such cases where a positive test result will persist for as long as three months. We are working very closely with Lorain County Public Health to guide us to determine when this staff member can safely return to work. This staff member will not return to work until we have full assurance it is safe to do so. Neither Kendal at Oberlin nor Lorain County Public Health have assessed any residents or staff members to have been at risk. Again, this staff member has been off our campus for several weeks.

Due to HIPAA and confidentiality regulations, we are unable to provide any additional information. At this time, we have every confidence that no KaO resident has had any direct contact with the individual. This has been verified by extensive tracing.

IGA Grocery System

Last week, Barbara got a call from Leo Braido. This man has worked tirelessly every single day since the pandemic. His commitment to our residents is unmatched by any grocery owner. Please understand, however, that he shared they normally are staffed at more than 30 persons and are presently running at about 20 with sales higher than ever. Finding willing workers is the challenge. He mentioned to Barbara that changes have to be made and they are working toward an online system. This matter was discussed more fully with our dining supervisors who send help Monday – Friday and our Grocery volunteers Priscilla and Mary. We know part of the problem that IGA is encountering is the excessive time Sherri was spending answering calls from Kendal residents, calling residents to have to clarify orders, etc. So we, Kendal, are asking you to help this matter by doing your part. We can continue IGA shopping but only with your cooperation. This message has been crafted with IGA’s awareness by our Kendal Volunteers:

“We are very fortunate to have our orders from IGA delivered to our parking lots every two weeks. We need to remind everyone that Sherri is not the personal shopper for our 180+ Residents who order. She is wonderful but she is taking too much time making phone calls every day.”

Remember the Following:

  • Please do not call Sherri or anyone at IGA. If you have a problem, call Priscilla. (Sherri will not be calling you as she has in the past about alternate items OR if your order is not there in time, OR have more items to add.
  • Be very specific when ordering all items and write “No Substitutions” after the item if you want only that item as described.
  • Get your order in by 1pm on your order day. Keeping an on-going list will make it easier to remember after 2 weeks. Late orders will not be filled any longer.
  • If you are unable to submit your own order, it is up to you to find another resident or family member to help you or do it for you; IGA can no longer do that for you.
  • If you want to reserve something that IGA needs to order, send them an email.
  • On your pick-up day, make sure you are at your assigned parking lot on time.

Lorenzo’s Monthly Pizza Order Deliveries

  • We will be delivering Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Wednesday lots 1-7= 67 pizzas for 39 Households
  • Thursday lots 8-10, Apartments and Phases 1-2-3 = 61 pizzas for 39 Households, plus 2 staff.

Kendal Life Enrichment: Bonding over books and long-distance connections

When families can’t be in the same place physically, online tools are a great option for grandparents to connect to grandchildren. It gives grandparents and grandchildren a way to bond and learn from each other. Reading with your grandchild is one of the most important activities you can do together. This article will give you some tips as to how to make the most of this special time. Recent studies have demonstrated that animation combined with reading can enhance retention. Vooks is a kid-safe, ad-free streaming library of read-along, animated storybooks (30-day free trial ($4.99 /mo after)). The Vooks library is filled with children’s favorite stories. The no-ad and no in-app purchase features give peace of mind and guarantee a kid-friendly experience. There are lesson plans and discussion guides in their Resources section to help facilitate discussion.

Here are a couple of other ways that you can creatively connect from a distance:

Love Knows No Distance Box – You can put all your grandchild’s favorite things in a box that you know they will just LOVE! Or you can put some things in there that are special to the two of you.

Oxford’s COVID-19 Vaccine is Safe and Induces Immune ResponseInitial human trial results for a promising COVID-19 vaccine have been published in the journal, The Lancet. The vaccine, developed at Oxford University, has so far been found to be safe and induces the two key immune responses needed to protect against coronavirus infection. The Oxford COVID-19 vaccine, recently renamed from ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 to AZD1222, was developed incredibly rapidly with Phase 1/2 human trials started in April. The newly published preliminary data reports the results of a blind, randomized controlled trial testing the safety and immunogenicity of the experimental vaccine in 1,000 subjects.
