The skilled nursing care unit at Edgehill in Stamford has been awarded a 2018 Bronze Commitment to Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL). Edgehill is one of three continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) under the umbrella of Benchmark, a provider of senior living services in the Northeast. According to Westfair, all three of its skilled nursing care units have received the award.

The award is the first of three distinctions possible through the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program, which honors long-term and skilled nursing care providers that have demonstrated commitment to improving the quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.

Skilled nursing care represents a single step in the full continuum of care, including independent living, assisted living and memory care, offered at CCRCs such as Edgehill.

“We are honored to be one of a select few providers to win this award in Connecticut,” said Christopher Barstein, Edgehill executive director. “Our mission is to provide the highest standard of care to our residents. The compassion of our staff is shown in every individual interaction and every detail of our campus.”
