I’m excited to share some great news with you! Late last year, staff at the Alzheimer Society of Ontario voluntarily put our key processes, services and strategies through a rigorous assessment by Accreditation Canada. We were evaluated in all aspects of being both a health-care organization and a non-profit. And we have just heard that we have received a full four-year Accreditation! This is a great accomplishment for our organization and demonstrates to you our commitment to being a quality health charity and continually improving ourselves and the services we provide.
Accreditation Canada is an independent, non-profit organization that strives to improve health care for all Canadians. It works with health-care organizations to help them improve quality, safety, and efficiency so they can offer the best possible care and service. Being accredited means an organization has met the highest standards for quality and continuous improvement. Along with regular check-ins, an accredited organization is re-evaluated every four years.
Moving forward, this will strengthen the Alzheimer Society of Ontario’s strong brand among donors, supporters, partner organizations and government, all of whom are key stakeholders in advancing our vision of a world where every Ontarian impacted by this disease receives they help they need to live well with dementia.
