For over 30 years, Medford Leas has been accredited by CARF, the only national, independent accrediting body that evaluates and certifies the quality of a CCRC’s services and governance. Accreditation is achieved through observations, financial analysis, policy reviews and interviews with residents, staff and board members. This rigorous, voluntary assessment assures current and future residents that our community strives for and achieves the highest standards of quality in all its services and practices. Medford Leas is especially proud to stand as one of only a handful of CCRC’s in the United States to have sought and retained its accredited status since the Commission’s inception in 1985. The hallmark concept for those moving to our Lumberton campus is the choice between our traditional CCRC Residence and Care Agreement (which covers both residential amenities and continuing care) or our innovative Residence Agreement. The Residence Agreement provides the full complement of residential amenities, maintenance-free living, and services with optional fee-for-service access to our wellness, health, and long-term care services.
