West Toronto Services for Seniors Accreditation

“We did it!” Announcement of Accreditation Status

We are pleased to report to you that Silver Circle – West Toronto Services for Seniors (SC-WTSS) has been accredited for a period of three years for its Adult Day Services, Case Management and Home and Community Services programs. This is the first Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to SC-WTSS.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, SC-WTSS has demonstrated that it meets international standards for quality and is committed to pursuing excellence.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows our organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.

SC-WTSS is a not-for-profit organization that has been providing Adult Day, Case Management and Home and Community services in the West Toronto area since 1985.

CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served. Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.

We believe our organization is a valuable asset, and our CARF accreditation underscores our commitment to the community we serve.

Join in our celebration on Friday, June 21st between 8 and 10am at our Adult Day Services.

We will be hosting an Open House with a delicious pancake breakfast and you can learn more about our accredited Adult Day Services, Case Management and Home and Community Services. Please call Agata for more information at (416) 653.3535 Ext. 229.
