A rigorous review of health care practices at two family-owned long-term care homes has resulted in approval by Accreditation Canada.

After visiting Carveth Care Centre in Gananoque and Helen Henderson Care Centre in Amherstview, two long-term care homes near Kingston, Ontario, Accreditation Canada stamped them with a high rate of approval for their level of care.

“It is a huge accomplishment for a home to be accredited by Accreditation Canada and it speaks volumes about the quality-of-care and services that we provide,” says Angela Gibson, the senior manager who spearheaded the project for the home’s operating body, Gibson Family Health Care.

“The accreditation process requires a lot of time and effort by many people,” she explains. “I am incredibly proud of our staff and management teams for their hard work. We are delighted to achieve this goal.”

This approval means both homes meet or exceed the standard level of health care in Canada and are accredited until 2026.

“The Gibson family is committed to continuous quality improvement for both our residents and team members,” adds Lisa Gibson, Owner and Operator of Helen Henderson Care Centre. “The Accreditation Canada process is just one of the many resources our organization uses to grow and improve the workplace, as well as the level of care and services we provide to our residents. I am proud of our teams’ ability to meet and exceed the standards developed by Accreditation Canada.”


 

Accreditation Canada conducted the review in 2023 and rated the homes on patient safety, people-centred care, ethics, risk management, quality improvement and required organizational practices. It took them months to prepare for the review which was conducted by two surveyors who complimented the homes on their welcoming and friendly staff and homey atmospheres.

“We congratulate you on this achievement that demonstrates your organization’s determination and commitment to ongoing quality improvement,” says Julie Langlois, Chair of the Accreditation Decision Committee. “We applaud your leadership, staff and accreditation team members for their efforts and dedication to the provision of safe, quality health services.”

Gibson Family Health Care appreciates the expertise and approval of Accreditation Canada. To learn more about our homes, please call HHCC at 613-384-4585 or CCC at 613-382-4752.
