Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive cases of COVID-19 within our resident population. 

Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays:  If a Resident or family/friend places an order, please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) and Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) by 3:00 PM on Tuesday with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time so we can anticipate the orders arriving and ensure staff are available to collect/deliver in a timely manner. If the resident or family member is placing multiple orders for more than one person, it would be extremely helpful if we know what the food items are so we can be assured the order is correctly delivered.  Remember, this is contact-less delivery and the order must be placed for delivery between 11:30 am-12:30 pm on Wednesday only and it must be delivered to the back entrance.  

Visitation Developments:

An indoor visitation order has come down from the Ohio Department of Health.  The visits will look very much like the outdoor visits but will take place in the Beechroom, located next to the current outdoor visitation area.  For those who already have visits scheduled for the week of October 12th, these visits will remain the same, only they will take place indoors.  Please note that the Beechroom is the sole location of visitation and visitors will not be permitted in any other area of the building.

The order requires us to maintain the same rules and safeguards currently in place for outdoor visitation with the following exceptions:

No more than 2 visitors at a time

Face coverings must be worn and must be a surgical or procedural mask.  If you do not have this type of mask, Beechwood will supply you with one, which will be distributed during the screening process

All visitors must be at an age of maturity to facilitate social distancing and not be a distraction to other residents or staff and be able to wear a face covering

-Please be aware that, for residents who are in quarantine due to outside appointments or hospitalizations, your visit may need to be cancelled.  We will call or email you if this is the case.

-The schedule continues to be able to accommodate 2nd session requests.  For those interested, please clearly indicate your first request from your second request.

-When making a reservation request, please include your phone number, in the event that we need to make contact due to extreme weather for a cancellation or rescheduling.  

Now accepting reservations for 10/19 to 10/23.  Reservation window closes on 10/15.

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive cases of COVID-19 within our resident population. 

Testing Update: We apologize for the confusion last week.  The rapid tests conducted on Friday resulted in false positives.  We have decided not to use this particular test going forward.  If a more accurate rapid test is released, we will identify it in future notifications, and we will always send potential rapid test positives to the lab for confirmation testing.

Deliveries: Please note that Wednesday food delivery and daily package deliveries will be resumed immediately.

Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays:  Please note that if you have food deliveries for your loved one on Wednesday, that the delivery person MUST deliver to the back door (parking lot garden level), we do not accept any deliveries at our front door/main entrance and if a delivery is attempted and this location, it will be refused.  Also, as a reminder, this must be contact-less delivery and it the order must be placed for delivery between 11:30 am-12:30 pm on Wednesday only.  

If a Resident or family/friend places an order, please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) or Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time so we can anticipate the orders arriving and ensure staff are available to collect/deliver in a timely manner.

September 25, 2020 Special Update

September 25, 2020

Dear Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Summary of Changes Since Last Notice:

While unfortunate but not unexpected, additional staff members and residents have tested positive for Covid-19. We are reporting ten (10) additional staff members and four (4) residents who have tested positive. This brings our total active cases to ten (10) staff members and four (4) residents. The facility has cumulative total of twenty (20) staff members and four (4) residents confirmed Covid-19 tests associated with the facility to date. The staff members have been placed on medical leave and removed from the schedule upon notification to minimize exposure risk to other Residents/Staff and will remain on medical leave until a physician certifies they are safe to return to work. 

Action Plan.

Our revised action plan will mirror state and local guidance.  Under this approach, we will test all residents and staff immediately. We will test again next week. If everyone is COVID free next week we will not test the following week.  The Nursing Department will communicate with any identified residents and their responsible parties. Any subsequent positive test results will be communicated.

Contact us with questions.

We know that this pandemic is particularly challenging for you. We empathize with your feelings of separation and vulnerability, and we want to thank you for your ongoing support and trust. If you have any questions about COVID-19 or the steps that we are taking to protect our residents, please contact Scot Harmon, Administrator, at 513-842-0774, sharmon@beechwoodhome.com.

September 18, 2020 

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid-19 Status: We have had no known positive cases of COVID-19 within our resident population. 
 
Outside Food Delivery Opportunity on Wednesdays:
We have developed a plan that will provide the opportunity for our residents to place a weekly delivery order for lunch on Wednesdays while limiting the exposure risk for both Residents and Staff. Effective every Wednesday until further notice, outside food orders can be placed for delivery between 11:30am-12:30pm. If you (i.e. the resident) needs assistance eating, please have the items delivered between 11:30am-12pm. All orders are to be delivered to the back entrance and dropped in the foyer on the table. Due to current COVID restrictions, these orders need to be prepaid (including gratuity) with a credit card over the phone or through a food delivery app that takes payment at the time the order is placed. Beechwood staff will be assigned each Wednesday during the timeframe above to collect the orders and deliver to the recipients. The prepayment of these orders will allow a contact-less delivery to keep everyone safe. Families/friends are welcome to place an order for a Resident as long as it meets the criteria above (day and times). Outside food deliveries on any other day or time are still restricted. If a Resident or family/friend places an order, please email Scot (sharmon@beechwoodhome.com) or Megan (mrandolph@beechwoodhome.com) with the Resident name, restaurant or delivery app name, and estimated delivery time so we can anticipate the orders arriving and ensure staff are available to collect/deliver in a timely manner. If the resident or family member is placing multiple orders for more than one person, it would be extremely helpful if we know what the food items are so we can be assured the order is correctly delivered.
 

Outdoor Visitation Developments:
