New Automated Resident Family Notification System

The Beechwood Home is pleased to announce that we are in the process of setting up an automated resident family notification system which integrates with our medical record. We will be able to notify you right away if there is an outbreak in our facility, a power outage, a special event, or share other important news. This new service will allow our staff to spend more time focusing on providing direct care for your loved ones. These notices can go out by voice, text or email. If you would prefer to receive notifications by a specific communication method, please email me at hhefren@beechwoodhome.com. Please add 513-905-4739 to your contact information as this will be the number communications via text and phone will come to you from.  For communication tracking purposes, it would be appreciated if you could respond to the messages as prompted which frequently will be simply acknowledging that you received/read the message. Please let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns.

Voluntary FREE Covid Testing:  We are again offering free voluntary rapid covid-19 testing for visitors.  This service will typically be available Monday to Friday (9 AM to 2:00 PM) for any visitor coming to the facility.  For those interested, please let Geraldine know upon your arrival and she will assist with administering the test. We strongly encourage all Residents and Visitors to take advantage of this amazing opportunity to routinely know your covid status.  All staff are tested weekly as a proactive measure implemented to keep our residents as safe as possible and offering FREE VOLUNTARY testing is an additional layer of protection, we want to provide our entire Beechwood community.

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Approaching Storm:  Everyone is probably aware of the approaching storm and bitterly cold weather coming our way.  Please rest assured that we are preparing for this event and are doing everything we can to ensure our operations continue with as few interruptions as possible. We are extremely fortunate to have multiple emergency power backup systems on site that can be activated if needed.

Holiday Outing Safety: For anyone taking a Resident home for the holiday, please be aware of the dangers associated with bitterly cold temperatures.  Preparing for a quick transition from a vehicle into a home is recommended in addition to dressing appropriately for the weather.

Tripledemic: Flu, RSV and Covid-19 cases are high in our community and over-the-counter rapid tests are only available for covid-19 at this time.  When in doubt, if you are experiencing signs or symptoms of a respiratory virus or have recently been around someone who is sick, it is best to stay home to protect everyone. 

Active Shooter Training: We will be enacting an Active Shooter simulated exercise on 12/27/22, to fulfill our table-top/full-scale Emergency Management event requirement by CMS.  An exact time will not be given, so that the simulated active shooter situation can feel as real as possible and yield accurate results of strengths and weaknesses of Beechwood's protocol and response, so that we can adjust as needed. Please reach out to Nichole with questions/concerns at 513-321-9294 or nbond@beechwoodhome.com.

Residents/Family/Friends/Staff,

Covid Update:  With the recent COVID outbreak, Hamilton County being in "High/red" community COVID transmission status, and increased cases of influenza among staff and residents, Beechwood has decided to cancel any plans we had in the works for a Christmas Dinner for families. Beechwood will not be renting out rooms for family gatherings, due to the increase of infection spread with large gatherings. Please know that we will be providing our residents with a wonderful Christmas Dinner, and are decorating the facility in hopes of making this Christmas season as festive as possible, while maintaining the highest level of safety. We welcome families to continue to come in and visit with residents, however, we do strongly recommend the use of masks while in the facility, and strongly encourage meeting in resident's rooms to avoid germ spread.   

Giving Tree:   We are happy to announce that our annual Resident Giving Tree selections will be virtual this year. Please visit https://signup.com/go/gAmhpDa to pull a tag.  Please return the $25 max gift-wrapped item clearly displaying the gift # to the Garden Level Receptionist by December 15th.  For those who chose to participate, thanks for your willingness to bring our amazing residents joy during this holiday season.   If you have any questions, contact Rob Chapman at rchapman@beechwoodhome.com or call 513-321-9294 and ask for Rob or Darren.

Voice Activated Devices: We recommend that family/friends contact Sarah @ sapfeld-inman@beechwoodhome.com or 513-321-9294 to inquire if the therapy team feels that your loved one can successfully use a voice activated device before purchasing this holiday season.

Life Safety: As the holiday season is upon us, we would like to take this opportunity to remind all of our residents and staff of a few safety items. These are very important for our overall safety and that of your neighbors.  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact Charlie at 513 760 4986 

Please contact Heather Hefren (Director of Social Services) or Nichole Bond (Administrator) with questions/comments/concerns.

Good Afternoon Everyone, 

RED= Hamilton County: Per public health regulations, all visitors are strongly recommended to wear a surgical mask during the duration of their visit to the facility while Hamilton County's community transmission categorization is red.  Signs are posted at the entrance as a reminder. 

Tripledemic:  Heading into the third covid winter is being complicated by flu and RSV infections at unprecedented levels currently.  The Emergency Preparedness Committee recommends visitors only spend time in their loved one's room until further notice to reduce the possible spread of respiratory illnesses as much as possible to those who reside here. 

Request: If you are experiencing signs/symptoms of a respiratory illness or have been in close contact with someone who is currently sick, we ask that you refrain from visiting the facility.  While we are no longer mandated to symptom check visitors, it is in the best interest of everyone who lives here to minimize exposure as much as possible. 

Please contact Heather Hefren (Director of Social Services) or Nichole Bond (Administrator) with questions/comments/concerns. 

Sincerely,

Nichole Bond (Administrator)

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:

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).
