Consumers like you have choices in directing your services. Carefully researching and selecting your options are essential steps to finding the services you need and achieving the results you desire.
Accreditation demonstrates a provider’s commitment to continuously improve service quality and to focus on the satisfaction of the persons served.
CARF International is an independent, accrediting body of health and human services. Examples of the types of services are rehabilitation for a disability, treatment for addiction and substance abuse, home and community services, and retirement living. CARF-accredited service providers have applied CARF’s comprehensive set of standards for quality to their business and service delivery practices. This means that they have demonstrated conformance to proven standards for business practices and are committed to continuous quality improvement. Each provider’s commitment to excellence is periodically evaluated on site and reconfirmed annually.
CARF’s leading-edge standards are developed collaboratively with involvement of professionals and consumers just like you. CARF encourages individuals with many perspectives to take part in developing these standards.
You can find accredited services to match your or your loved ones’ needs using CARF’s online provider search tool. Please also take advantage of CARF’s many consumer resources, which provide guidance for accessing family, health, senior and aging, and employment services.
