Advanced Standing is a voluntary program for assisted living residences. Since its inception in 2012, The Cliffs at Eagle Rock’s Administrative staff recognized the program as a step toward assuring families the Cliffs was a residence where residents would receive quality care endorsed by New Jersey’s Healthcare Association and recognized as fully equipped for successful self-governance. Thus, The Cliffs was one of the first to apply and be awarded the 2012 Advance Standing Award.
The Department of Health, the government agency that inspects and licenses assisted living facilities in New Jersey has collaborated with the Health Care Association of New Jersey Foundation to expand oversight of facilities and ensure that all state licensing regulations and quality benchmarks are met. Residences that are found to provide more than the minimum and strive for excellence are awarded the special designation of Advanced Standing.
It is a recognition of compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations, the designation reflects a commitment to quality through participation in the National Center for Assisted Living Quality Performance Survey and meeting all benchmarks for quality indicators chosen by the Peer Review Panel of the Health Care Association of New Jersey Foundation.
The Cliffs is proud of its staff, their dedication, and commitment to “go the extra mile” to care for our residents, and to see themselves as healthcare professionals who deserve to be recognized.
