Argentum has introduced a first generation of quality standards addressing consumer and resident rights, safety, quality improvement, workforce and regulatory compliance. They are designed to complement state laws and regulations governing the operations of senior living communities. Over time, the standards will include collection of key quality indicators to benchmark and track a community’s quality improvement.
The submission period is now open. Both Argentum member and non-member senior living communities are now able to attest they meet this first generation of standards, which lay out basic requirements for quality, safety, and accountability. Argentum welcomes all industry members that conform to the standards to display the Argentum Quality in Senior Living Certificate.
For more information about the new quality standards program, visit www.argentum.org/standards.
