Vancouver, Wash. – The American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) recently recognized two Prestige Care senior care communities with the the 2019 Silver – Achievement in Quality Award for their commitment to resident-focused, high-quality health care service offerings.
The AHCA/NCAL awarded the following communities with the 2019 Silver Achievement in Quality Award:
- Olympic Alzheimer’s Residence in Gig Harbor, Wash.
- Prestige Assisted Living at Chico in Chico, Calif.
Olympic Alzheimer’s Residence is the only community to earn the Silver Quality Award in Washington, and Prestige Assisted Living in Chico is one of nine centers in California to earn the award this year.
“We are proud of these communities’ dedication to compassionate, comprehensive care and their motivation to continually look for new ways to make a difference the lives of others,” said Harold Delamarter, founding partner and CEO of Prestige Care. “We measure our success by the lives we touch and the care we provide, and these awards are a reminder that our values, and our devotion to high standards, enrich the lives of those we serve.”
The Silver Quality Award is the second of three progressive distinctions that long-term and post-acute care providers can earn through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award program, which challenges members to demonstrate excellence in quality. Senior care communities achieve Silver-level distinction after earning Bronze-level status in previous years by showcasing their commitment to improving health care outcomes for seniors and people with disabilities.
Since earning Silver status, both communities are now eligible for the Gold – Excellence in Quality Award, the highest level of distinction within the program.
