Seabury is proud of our CCAC accreditation. The Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC), which was acquired by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in 2003, is the nation’s only accrediting body for continuing care retirement communities that meet its quality standards. It is an independent accrediting body sponsored by the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. CCAC accreditation demands that communities meet standards of excellence in three critical areas; resident life, health and wellness; financial resources and disclosure; and governance and administration. These standards are demanding, and the accreditation process is rigorous, involving the full commitment of the Board of Directors, staff and residents of a community.
