It's a Consensus:
Kendal is an Ideal Community
" Friendly. "
" Safe. "
" Like family. "
Residents of Kendal at Lexington were
recently asked, " If someone was considering
a move to Kendal, what would
you want them to know? " Overwhelmingly,
the answers were positive and
undeniably enthusiastic!
FRIENDLY
Many of the survey responses named
the friendliness of both residents and
staff. The welcoming environment to
new residents was mentioned as well
as the lasting friendships forged among
the community. As one responded
shared, " The real-ness " of the friendships
you've made. "
That friendliness extends to the activities
and connection that many report
as one of the best perks of living
at Kendal. Even during restrictions due
to the pandemic, residents were able to
stay connected with each other and with
staff.
SAFE
Whether it's feeling safe on campus or
the fact that support staff are nearby,
safety was another top response. Again,
friendliness was mentioned as a key
component of a supportive environment
and the peace of mind for adult
children knowing their aging parents
are well take care of through the stages
of aging.
Others mentioned the physical safety
of living in a campus-like community
with support services on site.
LIKE FAMILY
The combination of both the friendly
atmosphere and the security of living
in a retirement community like Kendal
was the reason many respondents
mentioned " Like family. " Community,
inclusivity, and connection were included
as other reasons for the connection
many residents feel with each other and
with the staff.
RESIDENT-DRIVEN
With a resident-driven community model,
residents help arrange activities and
learning opportunities for themselves,
rather than having them planned for
them. It's just another way of recognizing
the value of each resident's unique
experiences, skills and interests.
LOCATION
Located in a picturesque Lexington with
access to a vibrant community with two
colleges and many social activities was
also expressed.
The staff and operation of Kendal was
also a popular response, whether it's the
availability of continuing care through
the aging process, or the involvement of
staff in working with residents to ensure
everyday living needs are met and the
quick response to the pandemic were
mentioned.
As one respondent said, " Kendal cares. "
Residents of Kendal at
Lexington were recently asked,
" If someone was considering
a move to Kendal, what would
you want them to know? "
Overwhelmingly, the answers
were positive and undeniably
enthusiastic!
