Kendal at Home Leader Honored as Outstanding Executive
Lynne Giacobbe, Executive Director of Kendal at Home, has received LeadingAge Ohio’s “Outstanding Executive” award. The award was presented earlier this month during the LeadingAge Ohio 2016 Annual Conference in Columbus, Ohio. The award honors a LeadingAge Ohio member who demonstrates personal integrity, leadership and professional dedication in their career in aging services.
Lynne has served Kendal at Home as Executive Director since its inception in 2003. An early pioneer in the Continuing Care at Home (CCAH) field, Kendal at Home was one of the first of five programs across the country and the only one of its type in Ohio. The program was designed to serve older adults in their own homes by becoming advocates in the care of those individuals. Kendal at Home continues to empower members to live independently through wellness programs, technology initiatives and an ongoing relationship with a care coordinator team. Led by Lynne’s vision, Kendal at Home serves nearly 300 individuals in northern Ohio.
As a member of the LeadingAge Ohio Leadership Academy Design Team and Lead Facilitator of the Academy, Lynne has played an integral role in developing leaders in the field of aging. Her passion for encouraging her staff to grow and lead is felt not only among Kendal at Home staff but also throughout the state of Ohio.
Kendal at Home has been a Vitalize 360 member organization since 2014.
