Villa Ventura Receives Esteemed Accreditation

18 Jan 2017 3:56 PM | Vickie Wolgast (Administrator)

Senior Star at Villa Ventura and Senior Star at Wexford Place are proud to announce today that they have each been awarded a three-year term of accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

This decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and demonstrates Senior Star’s substantial conformance to more than 1000 CARF standards for quality and pursuit of excellence. Senior Star at Wexford Place was awarded this honor in the following programs: Assisted Living, Dementia Care Specialty and Independent Senior Living. Senior Star at Villa Ventura has maintained CARF accreditation in Assisted Living for the past 12 years and now also holds this honor in Independent Living. This distinction places the two communities as the only organizations in the state of Missouri to be CARF accredited for Independent and Assisted Senior Living and places Senior Star at Wexford Place as the only senior living community in Missouri to be CARF accredited for a Dementia Care Specialty program.

Achieving the high standards required to becoming accredited and continually raising the bar with a focus on excellence is the hallmark of Senior Star’s culture. As an organization that provides direct services to people, Senior Star believes it has an obligation and responsibility to deliver the best in care, services, business operations and support to older adults and their families. To follow through on that obligation, seeking CARF accreditation was a priority.

Choosing to be accredited by CARF is voluntary and a testament to Senior Star’s unwavering commitment to improve the quality of lives for the older adults and families in their care. The teams at both communities went through a rigorous peer review process, which confirmed that their wide range of programs and services are measurable, accountable and of the highest quality. “This accreditation really validates our commitment of providing exceptional services to aging adults and ensures we always exceed best practice industry standards,” said Marsha Rufener, executive director of Senior Star at Wexford Place. “It means that families can expect excellence from our team,” said Tom Inderhees, executive director of Senior Star at Villa Ventura.
