Charles River Center Receives Highest CARF Accreditation

Charles River Center Needham

The Charles River Center announced today that its Day Habilitation division was recently re-certified with the highest level of recognition by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).  The Day Habilitation division serves 125 individuals with significant disabilities.

A team of CARF surveyors reviewed policies and practices, examined the facility and interviewed staff and individuals served by the Charles River Center.  

In addition to receiving high scores on each licensing and certification standard reviewed, the report recognized many outstanding achievements.  The report stated the organization “goes the extra mile by accepting difficult cases and by matching individuals with staff members who work effectively by understanding, appreciating, and respecting the individual in a positive person- and family-centered service milieu.”  It also stated that Charles River “maintains a healthy, clean and safe environment that supports quality services” and that there is a “strong connection between CRC and community groups.”    

“We are very pleased that CARF recognized our efforts and quality of care with this three-year accreditation,” said Anne-Marie Bajwa, Chief Operating Officer at the Charles River Center. “At Charles River we are committed to providing high quality, specialized care using a team approach, and we appreciate the CARF surveyors recognized this, as well as our talented staff.”
