What Does Accreditation Mean for You?
The Living Well Way
Private Home Care in British Columbia is unregulated. While there are many reputable and quality providers, Living Well has always had the goal of separating ourselves by setting the quality standard in the industry. In 2010 we committed to becoming Accredited so that we would have an independent evaluation of our practices, and guidance for developing processes for continual improvement. Organizations receiving an accreditation award from Accreditation Canada have worked hard to meet standards to deliver safe, high-quality care.
So, Who is Accreditation Canada?
Accreditation Canada is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to working with patients, policy makers and the public to improve the quality of health and social services for all. They work to bring the best of health care from around the world home, and vice versa. Accreditation Canada works closely with health and social services organizations in Canada and abroad to develop a sustainable culture of improvement that betters safety and efficiency, working to save and improve lives.
What This Means to You
We're proud that after 4 years of hard work, in May 2014 we received Accreditation with Commendation, which means we not only meet standards, but go above and beyond. We're surveyed every 4 years to ensure that we continue to improve. We hope the commitment we make to the quality of your care gives you comfort and confidence as you trust in Living Well.
