Since 2008, Smith Crossing has earned the distinct honor of CARF accreditation, a prestigious honor that less than 10% of Life Plan Communities achieve internationally.
But what does that mean for you? Well, for starters, it’s your assurance that Smith Crossing continually provides the highest quality of care, services, programs, and facilities. This recognition also shows that we have made a specific commitment to put the needs of our residents and their families at the center of everything we do.
Founded in 1966, CARF International (the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is a worldwide, independent non-profit organization focused on advancing the quality of health and human services. Accreditation is the official recognition that an organization is guided by rigorous internationally recognized service standards and best practices. CARF accreditation signals a service provider’s commitment to continually improving services, encouraging feedback, and serving the community.
“I truly believe in the process of CARF accreditation at Smith Crossing. It makes us a better and stronger organization,” cites Frank Guajardo, Smith Crossing Executive Director. “It gives us an opportunity to continuously evaluate our policies and procedures and look at how we deliver our person-centered services to continually improve the quality of life that we offer to our residents.”
