One of the most important ways that Asbury shows its dedication to quality and accountability is through its long-time participation in the only national accreditation program for Continuing Care Retirement Communities. Because of this commitment, Asbury Solomons is among just 13 percent of Continuing Care Retirement Communities nationally – and the only one in Calvert County, MD – accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities-Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CARF-CCAC).
This designation means that an independent survey team has evaluated Asbury Solomons and found it in compliance with more than 600 measures of quality, including financial indicators that relate to a community’s long-term viability. Once a community has earned accreditation, it participates in a review of financial indicators each year and accommodates an on-site evaluation by a survey team every five years.
Based in Washington, D.C., CARF-CCAC is a not-for-profit organization and part of a family of organizations overseen by CARF International, which currently accredits more than 47,000 programs and services at more than 20,000 locations on five continents.
