I am very pleased to announce Peel Cheshire Homes Inc. (Cheshire House), has achieved a three year accreditation status with CARF International!
Accreditation is official recognition that our organization is guided by internationally recognized service standards and best practices. The process involves a survey conducted by a representative of CARF International. The survey consists of interviews with both internal and external stakeholders. Those who participated were our residents, staff, Board of Directors, colleagues, family members, volunteers and funder.
The surveyor also reviewed our policies, procedures and plans.
The following comments are a few examples of the positive feedback we received from our CARF surveyor:
“Peel Cheshire Homes Inc. is congratulated on its anniversary celebrations planned for June 2016 representing 40 years of dedicated service to the community. This vibrant impact on the community was acknowledged by all of the external stakeholders.”
“The Board of Directors is an engaged and passionate part of the organization.”
“Peel Cheshire Homes Inc. has established a resident-focused program that is acknowledged and respected by the community and the families involved.”
“A commitment to quality improvement permeates the organization.”
Attaining and maintaining CARF accreditation status requires significant effort, strong teamwork, and a commitment at all levels of the organization. My thanks to all involved for this tremendous effort.
