“CHAP has its sights set on a goal to bring Age-Friendly Care and the 4Ms Framework to the home healthcare setting where most older people get their care and for whom we serve. Through various partnerships, we are developing the 4Ms Framework educational tools and resources for community-based care providers to utilize and gain recognition. The design of the 4Ms Framework fits naturally with CHAP Standards, and the review and recognition tasks align with current site visit and award protocols. Participating in this project with the founding organizations of Age-Friendly Health Systems is a distinct privilege and aligns CHAP’s quality work with innovation and excellence.”

“Achieving Age-Friendly Care at Home certification reaffirms the work Compassus does every day to provide hospice care that focuses on a person’s all-encompassing needs. We are encouraged by the expansion of these standards to home-based care and honored to be distinguished as an Age-Friendly Care at Home provider at a time when more people are choosing to receive care in their home environments.”
– Jennifer Hale, VP of Clinical Quality and Standards, Compassus
“We are proud to be at the forefront of bringing the Age-Friendly Health Systems movement to home-based care. While we’ve always focused on delivering evidence-based, patient-centered care, this movement provides a clear framework on how to incorporate these elements into our standards of care in a way that benefits our patients, clinicians, referral sources and payors.”
