ESS is proud to be Accredited with Exemplary Standing

Accredited with Exemplary Standing SealAccreditation Canada is an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides national and international external reviews to assess the practices of health care organizations and assist them in improving the services they provide based on standards of excellence. Health care providers accredited by Accreditation Canada have met their national standards of quality and are committed to making sure clients receive the best care possible. These standards examine all aspects of health care from client safety, to staff training, infection control and partnering within the community.

As an organization providing community based support services, undergoing and achieving accreditation underscores ESS’ commitment towards the highest quality of client care and safety in our services and practices. We have taken extra steps and have put in policies and procedures in place which allow us to minimize risks and deliver safe care. Being accredited allows us to celebrate our strengths and successes, measure and evaluate our services, as well as identify areas of improvement to ensure we are delivering the best possible programs and services to our clients, caregivers and families.

We are very proud to announce that in 2013 ESS Support Services was successfully been accredited, for a four year period, with Exemplary Standing by Accreditation Canada! Exemplary status is the highest possible level of performance, signifying the achievement of excellence in meeting the requirements of the accreditation program.

With sincere thanks to our creative and client-centred staff, along with our team of dedicated Board Members and service volunteers, it is with your hard work, commitment and support that ESS has attained this status and continues to deliver quality community services while striving for excellence in fulfilling our mandate.
