The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilties (CARF) is an international, non-profit accrediting organization that extends on-going clinical guidance and ensures patient standards for those offer and receiving rehabilitative care.
Consumers like you have choices in directing your services. Carefully researching and selecting your options are essential steps to finding the services you need and achieving the results you desire.
Accreditation demonstrates a provider's commitment to continuously improve service quality and to focus on the satisfaction of the persons served.
CARF International is an independent accrediting body of health and human services. Examples of the types of services are rehabilitation for a disability, treatment for addition and substance, home and community services, and retirement living. CARF-accredited service providers have applied CARF's comprehensive set of standards for quality to the business and service delivery practices. This means that they have demonstrated conformance to proven standards for business practices and are committed to continuous quality improvement. Each provider's commitment to excellence is periodically evaluated on site and reconfirmed annually.
CARF's leading-edge standards are developed collaboratively with involvement of professionals and consumers just like you. CARF encourages individuals with many perspectives to take part in developing these standards.
The mission of CARF is to promite the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process and continuous improvement services that center on enhancing the lives of persons served.
Through responsiveness to a dynamic and diverse environment, CARF serves as a catalyst for improving the quality of life of the persons served.
