Hilltop program retains accreditation

A Grand Junction program offering housing and other services to adults with traumatic brain injuries has earned accreditation for another three years.

The Hilltop Life Adjustment Program has earned its sixth three-year accreditation from CARF International. The Hilltop program has been continuously accredited by CARF International since 1997.

Founded in 1966 as the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, CARF is an independent, nonprofit accrediting organization that promotes quality services through a consultative process focusing on the people who receive those services. CARF offers accreditation services worldwide at the request of health and human service providers. CARF organizations accredit a total of more than 48,000 programs and services offered at more than 21,000 locations on five continents.

Accreditation means the organization confirms to CARF standards and offers quality programs and services that are measurable and accountable. Organizations receiving accreditation go through a rigorous peer review process as well as an on-site visit by a team of surveyors.

The Hilltop Life Adjustment Program has been serving clients for more than 25 years. The program houses clients in one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in a campus setting, giving them an opportunity to reclaim their independence.

The program serves residential and day service clients whose only other alternative is often home care, locked nursing homes or psychiatric institutions.
