PVE Earns CARF Seal of Approval

For communities like PVE, Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditation is an important seal of approval. Only ten percent of communities across the nation have earned this accreditation.


When Paradise Valley Estates earned full accreditation by CARF in 2009, the continuing care retirement community joined an elite group of caregivers. It’s proof of our commitment to achieving and maintaining the highest standards for our residents.

Founded in 1966, CARF is an independent nonprofit which officially recognizes quality in health and human service providers. Paradise Valley Estates earned a full, five-year accreditation in 2009 and was recently surveyed and re-certified. The survey team was very impressed with the community’s programs and provided positive feedback.

This accreditation process involves many different stakeholders of the community, including staff, residents, family members, board members and even vendors. The intention is to get a complete view of the community and its operations.

The review is very stringent. Every policy and procedure carefully considered, every area of care from healthcare quality to recreational activities is evaluated for effectiveness and meaningfulness to residents.”

CARF’s rigorous review closely aligns with the community’s guiding objectives. When you walk on to our campus, quality is evident. We work hard to create a place that can provide our residents with the life they want. CARF accreditation underlines that effort.
