PORTLAND, OR.—November 3, 2023—NorthWest Place, an active retirement community owned and operated by Senior Resource Group (SRG), today announced it has been reaccredited by CARF International. Similar to the five-star rating of the hospitality industry, this certification is the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to a retirement community. “We are incredibly proud to have achieved CARF reaccreditation. It stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to raising the bar on senior living and ensuring the highest standards of care and service for our community,” said Executive Director Shannon Lang. “This achievement is a reflection of the dedication and hard work of our entire team, and we will continue to strive for excellence in everything we do.”

To receive the three-year reaccreditation outcome, NorthWest Place completed a voluntary peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurability and accountability.  The survey team’s report highlighted the community’s many strengths, including a “boutique” approach to meeting the needs of residents, a talented and committed leadership team that has mastered the meaning of person-centered care, an innovative approach to technology, extensive menu options and enhanced outdoor spaces. “NorthWest Place excelled in every category and benchmark evaluated by the committee, earning almost 100% across the board,” added Lang. “This isn’t just an endorsement of our commitment; it’s a promise to our residents, their families, and our community that we will continue to set high standards, exceed expectations, and make a positive impact on the lives we touch.”
