Kendal Design Guidelines

The Process

To inform the Design Guidelines, POEs were conducted at two of Kendal’s newest continuing care retirement communities, Kendal on Hudson (located in Sleepy Hollow, New York) and Kendal at Granville (located in Granville, Ohio). The process included a review of archival data, facility walk-throughs, on-site observations, and interviews with residents, staff, and visitors. Surveys were also distributed to residents and staff, providing all building occupants—not just those we interviewed—with a chance to provide feedback. A final report and presentation, with discussion, was shared with Kendal administrators to communicate the findings, discuss the implications and next steps, and to assist them in embarking on further inquiry.
