CARF - Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities Logo

Lifeworks strives to provide high-quality services that enhance the lives of the people we serve. We do this by continuously seeking ways that we can improve. This is to ensure that our offerings reflect the highest standard of service. We thank our dedicated and skilled staff for helping us be leaders of our industry.


Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities

In order for Lifeworks to partner with Vocational Rehabilitation Services, we undergo an audit every three years with Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International. CARF is an independent non-profit accreditor of health and human services. They report accrediting more than 59,000 programs at over 27,000 locations worldwide.

In July and August, CARF surveyors completed a recertification audit of Lifeworks Employment and Day Services. They were complimentary and impressed by our work.

“This accreditation will extend through September 30, 2022. This achievement is an indication of your organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel, and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of conformance to standards.”

Please note that the enclosed accreditation report identifies no recommendations. This accomplishment is achieved on only 3 percent of CARF surveys.


Readiness Review

The Financial Management Services contract with the state requires Lifeworks to pass a Readiness Review. This evaluation is intended to determine if the organization is prepared to maintain compliance with Federal, State, and Local tax rules for self-directed services.

Despite being only four months into the new state contract, Lifeworks Fiscal Management Service received high marks.  Lifeworks passed our Readiness Review with an incredible score of 99 percent.

Congrats to all of the Lifeworks staff who maintain a high level of excellence on a daily basis. A big thanks to those who helped the organization prepare for and pass these evaluations with flying colors. We greatly appreciate your efforts!
