As a premier senior living community with LifeCare services and a primary care physician practice, quality care has always been a top priority at Friendship Village of Dublin. In accordance with this long-standing commitment, Friendship Village of Dublin recently received its five-year CARF accreditation, its fourth since 2003.

This prestigious recognition represents the highest level of certification that can be awarded to an organization and indicates its substantial conformance to CARF standards. A senior living community receiving a Five-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality and accountability. 

CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is the world’s leading independent accreditor of health and human services. As an independent, nonprofit accrediting body, its mission is to promote the quality, value and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing the lives of the persons served.  

“We are very excited to receive CARF accreditation, as this is our fourth recognition since 2003,” said Rita Doherty, executive director of Friendship Village of Dublin. “This recognition reinforces our commitment to enhancing quality care for older adults in central Ohio, placing resident health as our top priority.”

All in all, Friendship Village of Dublin staff and the community’s hard-working associates are thrilled to receive this recognition, acknowledging that obtaining these quality care standards is of the utmost important. 

“I am very proud of our staff for their continuous dedication in ensuring exceptional care to residents in our community,” said Doherty.
