Visalia, Calif. – Prestige Senior Living is pleased to announce that its assisted living and memory care community in Visalia, California, recently earned a deficiency-free survey from the California Department of Social Services (CDSS).
In its most recent survey led by state regulators, Prestige Assisted Living at Visalia surpassed federal and state standards in every area of care, service and safety.
A deficiency-free survey indicates that the community met all of the state’s safety and quality standards. Senior living communities are evaluated by state officials following an extensive, unannounced survey, which is conducted on-site over several days. Inspectors judge a community’s performance on safety measures in 15 categories that cover quality of care, service and more.
“We pride ourselves in ensuring that our residents receive the highest level of safe, compassionate care day-in and day-out,” said Crystal Gonzales, executive director of Prestige Assisted Living at Visalia. “We are humbled to be recognized with a deficiency-free survey, which we can attribute to the hard work and dedication of everyone on our team who truly embraces our role in caring for seniors.”
Officials evaluate assisted living communities’ systems and performance within quality measure categories spanning resident satisfaction, safety, quality of care and services, hygiene, food service and more. Survey results inform consumers about the health and safety inspection results of various communities and allow them to track the improvements a particular senior care provider has made over time.
Prestige Assisted Living at Visalia is centrally located between Fresno and Bakersfield in the city of Visalia and offers a high-quality and well-rounded assisted living experience. The community also offers Prestige’s award-winning Expressions Memory Care Program, which provides a stimulating outlet for creativity geared toward individuals living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
