The Rehabilitative Services Units and the Medical Acute Care Unit at HRC are accredited by CARF (the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities).
Orchard Cove has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities - Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF-CCAC). Accreditation is a mark of quality, a sign of integrity, and a standard of comparison when evaluating retirement communities. Orchard Cove is one of the six accredited CCRCs in Massachusetts.
CARF-CCAC accreditation is a rigorous voluntary process involving extensive self-evaluation by the residents, retirement community's staff, board of directors, and an onsite review by trained CARF-CCAC surveyors. The whole process demands that a community meet standards of excellence in three vital areas: resident life, health and wellness; financial resources and disclosure; and governance and administration.
