Memberships and accreditations
Providence Life Services is an active member of a number of organizations and associations whose goal is to ensure that seniors are able to choose from a broad range of high-quality living and service options. Our memberships include:
The mission of LeadingAge is to expand the world of possibilities for aging. It is a national organization of 6,000 not-for-profit senior service providers. LeadingAge also has a number of state-level branches, and Providence Life Services has joined the agency in each state where we operate: Illinois, Michigan and Indiana.
The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in healthcare. Achieving accreditation is not mandatory for skilled nursing centers, but Providence appreciates the commitment to quality that The Joint Commission’s standards represent, so Providence skilled nursing centers gladly apply. All three Providence Healthcare & Rehabilitation Centers in Illinois have earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval as well as a special certification in post-acute care.
Formerly known as the Assisted Living Federation of America, Argentum is a national association that advocates for choice, accessibility, independence, dignity, and quality of life for all seniors. They are a source of useful information for consumers who need help reviewing Assisted Living options, assessing senior living costs, and choosing an Assisted Living community.
