Cedar Village Earns Perfect Score from the State of Ohio
Second time earning this recognition in 10 months
Mason, OH–Cedar Village Retirement Community is proud to announce that they have scored Ohio’s top marks for operating an assisted living community. The Mason-based community that offers independent and assisted living apartments has earned a deficiency-free survey from the State of Ohio Department of Health for 2016. That is the second such recognition in just a 10-month time span. This honor is the result of the hard work and dedication the Cedar Village staff.
“Achieving high marks has never been more important,” said Rachel Hodesh, Director of Independent/Assisted Living. “Consumers need more to go on than a gut reaction to how a place looks and feels. This survey demonstrates the quality of the care and service we deliver in a way people can easily understand.”
Cedar Village also delivers post-acute care to patients needing skilled nursing care and rehabilitation between leaving the hospital and going home. Health systems are increasingly looking for ways to evaluate the quality of care those organizations deliver. Metrics like Cedar Village’s deficiency-free survey are becoming more important as hospitals determine where to refer patients.
The Ohio Department of Health surveys facilities annually, enabling them to remain licensed as a certified residential care organization.
Hodesh believes that Cedar Village’s high apartment occupancy rate is a sign that the organization is definitely hitting its stride.
The assisted living apartments provide a safe place to live with two meals a day in the dining room, breakfast in the kosher deli (open six days a week to the entire community), housekeeping and laundry services, medical care, social work care, and priority access to the on-site clinic, to list a few services.
Ruth Kerbel is vice-president of the Tenant’s Association. She’s lived there for over 5 years and the deficiency-free survey doesn’t surprise her; “She said, “they really provide what it takes to get on with life.”
Cedar Village is not just a Cincinnati resource; they have residents moving in from cities all over Ohio, most recently South Dayton. “When people hear about us, they just want to be a part of our family,” said Hodesh. “It’s an honor to serve them.”
