Aberdeen Village earned a zero-deficiency survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its annual inspection June 16, 2018.
“We are very proud of our staff’s achievement,” said Tim Allin, executive director. “It is their commitment to our mission and residents that led to a deficiency-free community. By being blessed with a great team that is dedicated to Aberdeen Village and each other, we’ve created a foundation that enables us to provide quality services for seniors every day.”
Each year, senior living communities are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations, which number in the hundreds, are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care.
There are 17 major areas assessed, which include quality of care and physical environment. The surveyors look at every aspect of a resident’s life, from dietary choices, to dental care; from frequency of physician visits to ease of access to their mail.
“Being recognized as a deficiency-free community offers evidence of the staff’s compassion and desire to make Aberdeen Village a place our residents are honored to call home,” Allin said.
The achievement by Aberdeen Village places the senior living community in the top tier of survey performances in Kansas.
