On March 9, 10 and 11, 2015, Habilitation Assistance Corporation hosted two surveyors from CARF International. Their visit was part of an accreditation survey, which reviews our agency for conformance to more than 1,000 quality of service standards.
Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services in Employment and Community Services.
The CARF International group of companies currently accredits more than 50,000 programs and services at 23,000 locations. More than 8 million persons of all ages are served annually by 6,800 CARF-accredited service providers.
CARF accreditation extends to countries in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Quality standards form the cornerstone of CARF accreditation. Conformance to quality standards is a way to identify areas for improvement and growth and help the service provider focus on improved service outcomes, satisfaction of the persons served, and quality service delivery. Each standard sets a guideline for the subject addressed.
Habilitation Assistance Corporation staff and members met with the two surveyors on Wednesday for an Exit Summary Conference, where the surveyors described their findings from their visit. We were so happy to find that there were no recommendations for improvements in their findings!
We look forward to receiving our official accreditation report and will share details here soon! Congratulations to all our wonderful staff for their ongoing efforts to provide the best services possible!
A survey team from CARF International* will be visiting on March 9, 2015 through March 11, 2015
We invited the surveyors to evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality. The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. As a result of this survey, we may earn or continue accreditation.
As part of the survey, the surveyors will interview people who receive services, their families, our staff, and others. Some questions the survey team members might ask people are:
- Do we provide a clean and safe setting?
- Do you receive the services you need and want?
- Are you treated with respect?
- Do you take part in planning your services?
- Are you told what you need to know about your services?
- Are your questions answered in a way you understand?
- Do you know where to go with questions or concerns?
If you would like to talk with one of the survey team members or want to learn more about CARF International, please let one of our staff members know. You may also contact CARF International directly.

Thank you so much, Viviana, for your forthcoming and informative story that brings to light what many wouldn’t consider when in the presence of a person having a seizure.
