The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) is the nation’s only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities. Before CARF was founded, consumers, financial rating agencies, and others had no clear way of determining whether a retirement community was financially stable, providing quality care, or worthy of their investment.
Carleton-Willard was the first in Massachusetts to receive this prestigious accreditation and every five years it continues to undergo a rigorous process of self-evaluation as well as on-site review by trained surveyors. We are proud to be one of only six Massachusetts communities to be accredited.
When a retirement community is CARF-accredited, it means the community has passed an in-depth review of its services. It is your assurance that the community meets rigorous CARF guidelines for service and an unqualified endorsement that your community conforms to nationally and internationally recognized service standards and is focused on delivering the best services for you.
