Tabor Village receives accreditation process’ highest honour

Abbotsford aged-care organization given Exemplary Standing

Tabor Village in Abbotsford has been ranked in the top per cents of all Canadian aged-care organizations.

The agency has been recognized by Accreditation Canada – a national leading independent surveyor of health-care organizations – for delivering excellence in care, patient safety and operations.

Surveyors spent three days examining all aspects of Tabor Village’s care and operations, resulting in the site receiving Accreditation Canada’s highest honour – Exemplary Standing – after fulfilling 100 per cent of the required organizational practices.

In addition, Tabor Village met an exceptional 97.25 per cent of the designated accreditation standards set out by the surveyors.

“Residents and family members speak highly of Tabor Village,” the accreditation report states.

“They are happy to call Tabor home and feel that care is excellent and their loved ones are safe and well provided for. The staff are skilled, and all live the mission, vision, and values of ‘caring from the heart.’ ”

Among the aspects of Tabor Village that surveyors highlighted in their report were its committed board of directors, “visionary leaders” who seek to “change the culture and narrative of dementia care,” “outstanding clinical competency” and a large and diverse group of volunteers.

“Our accreditation results clearly show that Tabor Village’s dedication to performance excellence is rooted strongly into organizational culture,” said Dan Levitt, executive director of Tabor Village.

“We have worked in partnership with our community to offer high-quality care, specialized services and innovative programs focused on aging.”

In addition to the Accreditation Canada top rating, Tabor Court Assisted Living recently received a third consecutive Seal of Approval award from the B.C. Senior Living Association.

Tabor Court consistently receives high satisfaction ratings from tenants who enjoy traditional Mennonite meals, individualized clinical services, therapeutic programming and a well-appointed living environment.

Tabor Village operates two campuses serving nearly 300 people supported by 500 staff and volunteers.
