CARF-CCAC, the national non-profit accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities, announced that the accreditation for Shell Point Retirement Community has been renewed for another five year term, and that Shell Point has been certified as a Person-Centered Care Community with additional designations. These specialty designations are Person-Centered Long-Term Care Community: Dementia Care Specialty Program and Person-Centered Long-Term Care Community: Stroke Specialty Program. Shell Point is the first, and currently only, community in the nation to receive the stroke specialty designation.
According to Steve Minniear, vice president of health care services, the desire to participate in the rigorous CARF-CCAC process was part of an ongoing commitment to health care excellence. “For the past five years, Shell Point has been on a journey of quality improvement to its entire health care system. Our health care services have always been recognized for excellence but we felt it was time to take health care to the next level and it has been gratifying to see the result of our initiatives and efforts. While we are pleased to receive this recognition, we receive greater pleasure in knowing that we are providing the finest care possible to our residents.”
