In preparation for the accreditation survey, we have completed self assessments, identified areas for improvement and established action plans to achieve better results. Some plans have been implemented; others are being finalized. LVCC is taking a thorough approach to any changes prior to implementing them. These changes may take time.
Over the next couple weeks, we will be running mock survey exercises with our staff to provide them with a chance to understand the types of questions they may be asked.
The leadership team has been meeting weekly to discuss the process of accreditation. We will give notice to visitors, residents, families and staff of when surveyors will be visiting.
Accreditation starts on October 15, 2019 and we are excited to welcome our surveyors: Linda Hanford and Susan Veenstra for this survey cycle. Linda and Susan will be with us till October 18, 2019.
These days will be packed with activities with onsite visits and meeting residents, families and community members. Lynn Valley Care Centre is eager to showcase how we have grown as an organization.
