Westminster at Lake Ridge earns CARF-CCAC certification

There are many factors to consider when you’re considering retirement options for yourself or your loved ones. One of the most important is quality of services, and one of the most important indicators of quality is accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC).

Only 300 of the 1,900 continuing care retirement communities in the United States have earned the CARF-CCAC Accreditation, and we are pleased to announce that Westminster at Lake Ridge has joined this elite group with the award of the Five-Year CARF-CCAC Accreditation.

The Five-Year CARF-CCAC Accreditation is the highest level of accreditation awarded to a continuing care retirement community. It is given only after a lengthy and rigorous review process that includes an evaluation of the community’s adherence to more than 1,000 CARF-CCAC standards of excellence covering more than 750 areas of operation that focus on quality and widely accepted principles. The community also must undergo an on-site survey from a team chosen from among experts with experience in the field.

Accreditation by these organizations assures residents and potential members that Westminster at Lake Ridge has made a commitment to continue to enhance the quality of its services and programs and its dedication to the satisfaction of every individual it serves. As a Five-Year CARF-CCAC Accreditation designee, Westminster at Lake Ridge will not simply rest on its laurels. The retirement community will be required to demonstrate its continued commitment to the person-centered standards that emphasize an integrated and individualized approach to services and outcomes. Westminster at Lake Ridge will submit an annual Conformance to Quality report on the anniversary date of its accreditation and inform the accrediting organization of updates to its programs.

Both of Westminster at Lake Ridge’s sister communities, Ingleside at King Farm and Ingleside at Rock Creek, also have earned this exclusive and prestigious accreditation. Ingleside at King Farm was accredited in 2014, and Ingleside at Rock Creek was accredited in 2015.

The accrediting organization was formed in 2003 with the merger of the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission, the United States’ only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities, and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, a nonprofit accreditor of human service organizations.

Westminster at Lake Ridge is proud to have achieved this recognition of its commitment to providing the very best retirement living for active people who remain highly engaged in the community and the world. Westminster at Lake Ridge also has earned a five-star rating from Medicare for its Health Services Center, indicating that it is much above average in the quality of services it offers.
