Did you know that the majority of the home care agencies in Edmonton and Calgary are not accredited health care agencies? There are only a handful of accredited home care agencies in Alberta's major cities, with five in Edmonton and three in Calgary.

Compassion Network Home Care provides accredited home care services in both Calgary and Edmonton. As a private home care agency, Compassion Network Home Care's accreditation with commendation sets us apart from the competition. But what is accreditation, and why does it matter?

Keep reading to learn why accreditation is the gold standard for home care services in Calgary and Edmonton.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation Canada has worked with health and social services organizations for over 60 years, developing standards of excellence in social services. Accreditation is an ongoing process of checks and balances to identify an organization's strengths and weaknesses, looking holistically at the entire organization.

The accreditation process is all about improving the quality of care, reducing risk and strengthening the accountability of healthcare and other social service providers. Being an accredited organization means Compassion Network Home Care is dedicated to providing our clients with the best care and services.

Why does accreditation matter?

The Accreditation Canada seal on our website is a badge of honour saying, 'This organization is serious about delivering an exceptional quality of care.' Receiving accreditation is not an easy task— it requires a lot of time, energy and commitment to reach the level of quality, safety and efficiency needed to be accredited.

Compassion Network is dedicated to adhering to the highest quality and safety standards. We are regularly evaluated to ensure that our services meet or exceed the best practices of the home care industry, including the continuous professional development of our caregivers and support staff.
