How Do You Know Your Manassas Senior Care Agency Hires True Professionals that Care?
As growing numbers of baby boomers join the ranks of senior citizenry, the latest trends indicate that the vast majority of them insist on staying in their homes for as long as possible. This makes sense on many levels, both for a family’s budget, and for the senior’s mental, emotional and even physical well being. This trend makes home care in Manassas one of the area’s fastest growing career sectors also. So one of the most important things to find out, when interviewing a Manassas senior care agency to find the right fit for a home caregiver for your loved one, is whether or not the agency and their staff are accredited and meet the highest standards of competency and compassion.
BestCare Home Care is proud to have earned accreditation from the state of Virginia as a Licensed In-Home Health Care Agency. But we have gone a step further than that: Our Manassas senior care agency has also earned the coveted accreditation by CHAP, the Community Health Accreditation Program, Inc. This non-profit, independent accrediting body holds the home care agencies it approves to unparalleled standards of excellence. They are also the oldest such accrediting body, encouraging excellence in community-based health care since 1965. For our home care in Manassas, CHAP regularly reviews our adherence to maintaining the highest standards in the following areas:
- Strong internal operations (staffing and management)
- Continually endeavoring to improve systems and techniques
- Strive for client satisfaction, safety and outcomes
- Honor the public trust
- Deliver on the community’s health needs in a cost-effective, efficient manner
- Promote the sustainability of community health in our community.
In fact, CHAP’s high standards for accreditation, which our Manassas Senior Care Agency proudly upholds in our day-to-day service to our patients, have been recognized by the Federal Government. Since 1992, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) actually granted “deeming authority” to CHAP to judge whether or not the home care agencies under their purview are upholding the standards set forth in the Medicare Conditions of Participation (COPs).
In addition to Virginia state and CHAP accreditation, our home care team is also proud to be a member of several other specialized organizations that are constantly striving for home care excellence. We are members of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America as we strive to help our Alzheimer’s patients and their families have the best quality of life possible. We are also members of the National Association of Home Care and Hospice.
