Deerfield has just concluded the five year annual site visit for our CARF Accreditation process. The site visit is the culmination of a tremendous amount of deliberate hard work by staff, residents, contract providers, and our Board of Directors to assure that we are meeting the over 1300 standards that are established for high functioning Aging Service Providers. I am pleased to announce that at the exit review on April 25th the survey team cited that they were extremely impressed with our community, services, amenities and great value that we provide to our residents. The end result was that we received no recommendations for needed improvements! This is highly unusual and another confirmation of the dedication and commitment to continue to advance our mission to unprecedented levels. Only about 10% of all communities are CARF accredited and I am proud to be a part of the meaningful work that we do, and thankful for the unselfish commitment of our team.
CARF provides accreditation services worldwide at the request of health and human service providers. Providers that meet their standards have demonstrated their commitment to being among the best available.
