Accreditation Is Proof of Excellence

Choosing a senior living community that meets or exceeds your personal criteria for excellence can take some time and effort. Fortunately, there's an internationally recognized measurement of quality in senior living that you can look to for guidance–it's called CARF accreditation.

Granted by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, accreditation requires a Life Plan Community to meet over 1,100 nationally recognized standards for operational excellence–including financial stability.

Accreditation is a voluntary process beginning with a rigorous application, evaluation and inspection process followed by detailed annual reporting and a comprehensive on-site inspection every five years to re-earn accreditation.

Lenbrook first earned its CARF accreditation in 1992 and has successfully re-earned accreditation ever since. Lenbrook was also the first to become CARF accredited in Georgia and remains the only accredited Life Plan Community in Atlanta today.

Nationally, about 250 of the nation's nearly 2,000 Life Plan Communities have earned CARF accreditation. Lenbrook is proud to be among this select group. 

Accreditation provides an immediate assurance of the highest quality of service. It also offers peace of mind knowing your accredited community:

  • Is guided by and demonstrates compliance with internationally recognized service standards and best practices,
  • Is committed to providing the best quality of care,
  • Openly welcomes peer and professional review of its operations and
  • Places its residents at the center of everything it does.
