SENIOR LIVING STANDARDS

The Senior Living Standards Accreditation Program can be applied in the private, commercial, NGO, Not for profit and community sectors across the entire eco-system of Senior living and care, including but not exclusive to:

• Senior Living in Inter- generational Communities
• Independent or Adult Living Community (IL)
• Assisted Living Community (AL)
• Specialty Care Community, specific to Alzheimer, Parkinson, etc.
• Continuing Care Retirement Community (CC), stand alone or within Intergenerational communities.

ADVANTAGES OF STANDARDS AND ACCREDITATION

• Customer security, satisfaction, and pride.

• Commercial advantage and industry respect.

• Recognition and differentiation in the marketplace.

• Demonstrable and visible commitments to ethical standards and customer service.

• Attracts staff and management to work for an accredited provider.

KEY FEATURES OF THE STANDARDS

• Features the residents' perspective and distinguishes core or mandatory requirements from a developmental or optional outcome specified for each Standard.
• Follows a systems-based approach by organizations requiring evidence of documenting, implementing, communicating, improving, and reviewing systems.
• Has criteria that include mandatory and optional indicators and associated evidence requirements. This allows communities / entities across all socio-economic strata to engage, even at the entry and basic levels, while having an aspirational line of sight in improvement over time and development of the organisations resources, reflected in rating scores getting upgraded.
• Comprises a four-level hierarchy commencing with a quality standard and its intent, followed by multiple criteria required to be met to achieve the stated intent. The criteria are further broken up into smaller indicators or objectives, which are required to be met by measurable and current examples of evidence.
• An initial desktop self-assessment and review process, followed by an onsite assessment either completed remotely or as required onsite to tri-angulate documentation, interviews and practice, and observations in order to validate the findings and arrive at a recommendation for compliance with the Standards. The final recommendation will be translated directly into a final rating score, valid for a 3 year term.

WORKSHOP 1 LINK

Standards Wise International through their Indian subsidiary Standards Wise International India , rolled out the first ever Standards and Accreditation Matrix for the private sector in the space of Senior Living and Care Communities, for India.

In development of the local version of the Senior Living Standards, SWII facilitated consultations with global organisations, assessors, and several other Indian stakeholders, including senior members of the Association of Senior Living India (ASLI).

The standards are edited by Mr. Mansoor Dalal, Founder of ASLI.

The accreditation certificate, which will be issued after validation and assessing of various criteria and quality standards, will carry the endorsement of ASLI, SWII and The Commonwealth Association for Ageing

The combination of SWI, CA and ASLI brings together an extraordinarily strong group with significant expertise in this sector, that will introduce and promote a Senior Living Standards and Accreditation Matrix for India.

The Standards adapts and enhances existing standards and accreditation templates taken from SWI, and populates them with criteria, indicators, and evidence relevant and unique to the Indian context, introducing a preliminary code of operations for self-regulation, along with best practices collected from India and developed markets across the world.

The Standards have a four-level hierarchy comprising a quality standard and its intent, followed by multiple criteria to achieve the stated intent. This criterion is then further broken up into smaller indicators or objectives, which are then measured and assessed for evidence, and a rating score issued after final validation and assessment.

These Standards have criteria which are both mandatory and optional, thus allowing Communities and entities across all socio-economic strata to engage, even at the entry and basic levels, while having an aspirational line of sight on how to improve over time, given available resources, which would then reflect in the rating score being upgraded.

There are 8 Quality Standards, Governance, Management and Personnel, Design and Construction, Facilities Management, Resident engagement and Experience, Technology and Information Management and Hygiene, Safety, Infection Prevention / Pandemic Control (HSIPC).
