Accreditation: An Assurance of Quality Care

Accredited long-term care Park Place Residences

The decision to move your loved one into a Long-Term Care home is never an easy one, which is why it is so important to ensure you are making the best possible choice. Accreditation is important because it helps to create higher quality health care and social programs. Choosing an accredited Long-Term Care residence, like those in the Park Place family, means you can be sure that we will continue to focus on innovation and improvement to enhance the quality and safety of care we provide for your loved one.

What Is Accreditation?

Accreditation Canada was established in 1958

Health care accreditation is an ongoing process of assessing the health care and social services that organizations provide against standards of excellence, to identify what is being done well and identify opportunities for improvement. Accreditation Canada was established in 1958, as an independent, non-profit, voluntary accrediting body for the health care industry. Accreditation Canada is used by health care organizations across Canada and internationally as an independent measure for quality of care. When granted, the Accreditation Canada logo identifies health care organizations which have met national standards and utilize best practices in health care.

Accreditation & Park Place

Our Continued Commitment to Excellence

To earn accreditation, health care organizations must pass a rigorous and detailed in-person examination by an external, independent survey team of industry professionals. This process must be repeated every three years. Park Place Seniors Living has completed Accreditation Canada’s operational reviews in 2005, 2008, 2011, and 2014. Each time, we have earned full accreditation for the quality care we provide our clients.

One of our proudest moments came in May 2005, when Park Place was nationally accredited by the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation. This recognition is important to us as it allows us to know that, even as we grow, we still provide the very best in care and service at our care homes.
