Covid-19 Information

September 29, 2022

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

MyCare Ohio Open Enrollment:   For those with Ohio Medicaid and enrolled in the MyCare Ohio program, open enrollment occurs during the month of November with changes going into effect 1/1/2023.  Please let Heather know if you would like any changes made to your insurance arrangement and she will identify who is earmarked with HCJFS to initiate the change.  You may be contacted by Social Services to discuss an insurance change if a department at the facility feels a different insurance arrangement would be in the best interest of your loved one.

Best Wishes to Scot: Scot Harmon has been our administrator for the last five years and has tirelessly led our facility through some of the most challenging and quite frankly unimaginable times for those working and residing in long term care with phenomenal success.  Friday (9/30/22) will be Scot's last day as he embarks on a new career adventure.  Patricia Clark (our CEO) will be standing in as our Administrator until Scot's replacement has been oriented to our facility. 

As always, if you have any questions, please contact:

Heather Hefren hhefren@beechwoodhome.com(Director of Social Services) OR Patricia Clark pclark@beechwoodhome.com(CEO).

Sincerely, Patricia Clark, DM (CEO, Administrator)

September 1, 2022 - 360 Care

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Calls from 360 Care:  It has come to our attention that Residents and/or their Responsible Parties are receiving calls from 360 Care selling additional medical insurance products for a monthly premium.  360 Care has been providing these services to Beechwood Home residents. Please be aware that The Beechwood Home has NOT agreed to partner with the 360 Care Resident Insurance premium program and we are NOT involved with its development.  

This initially came to our attention in April 2022 when letters were initially mailed out.  While it is being advertised as free, you will be billed up to $290.00/month for coverage Medicaid already provides.   We will be contacting 360 Care again indicating that they are not authorized to use our name in any of their marketing materials or to mislead people into thinking that The Beechwood Home has an active contract with them for these additional insurance products.   We apologize for any confusion this has caused.  Please contact Heather @ Hhefren@beechwoodhome.com with questions. 

As always, if you have any questions/comments/concerns, please contact me, Scot Harmon (Administrator), or Patricia Clark (CEO).

June 3rd, 2022 Update

Quarantine:  The CDC recently updated the criteria to be considered "up-to-date" as it pertains to the covid-19 vaccines and how it impacts Residents and Staff related to quarantining and testing following a close contact exposure in   healthcare facilities.  For those who do not meet the criteria, a 10-day quarantine will be mandatory per public health guidance following either close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 and/or an overnight in a hospital. There is a test out option on day 7 however if the rapid test remains positive, an individual will need to complete the full quarantine. 

For residents and staff 50+:  need to have had initial series of vaccination (Pfizer/Moderna= 2 shots/ J&J= 1 shot) + 2 boosters (of Pfizer or Moderna). 

For residents and staff  under 50: will need to have had initial series of vaccination (Pfizer/Moderna= 2 shots/ J&J= 1 shot) + 1 booster (of Pfizer or Moderna).

For those who do not meet the criteria to receive the 2nd booster shot (4 months following 1st booster shot), they are considered "up-to-date" until the timeframe opens up to qualify for the 2nd booster at which point they would no longer be considered "up-to-date". 

12 Residents who were previously considered "up-to-date" will no longer meet the criteria.  Denise (Director of Nursing) will be reaching out to those impacted to inquire if they are interested in participating in an upcoming vaccine clinic this month. STOP to end

(The Beechwood Home) Message #2: If you have any questions about the vaccination status of you or your loved one, please contact Scot @ 513-842-0774 or sharmon@beechwoodhome.com
