Organizational Learning & Improvement
Community Living Parry Sound is committed to reporting information about successes, challenges, lessons learned and to provide a comparison of the organization’s goals and outcomes to actual results.
Community Living Parry Sound worked with LIFT Philanthropy Partners and MNP Consultants to create two new satisfaction surveys that helped to gather feedback about the support services offered by the organization. The first survey was completed by family members of people receiving services from Community Living Parry Sound. The second survey was created specifically for the people who receive services through agency-managed Passport funding. The surveys provide a channel for feedback from the people who receive support services from the organization – and the feedback gives us insight on how to better improve services in the future.
If you have any questions about the surveys or their results, please contact Jane Long, Manager of Corporate Services, at (705) 746-9330.
While the surveys are closed, we are always open to hearing your feedback, comments and concerns.
Quality Improvement Initiatives
Quality Assurance is a planned process to ensure that the quality of services provided enhances the quality of life for people that we support.
Quality is determined by the people using our services, the values of our organization, and the legislated standards of service. Therefore our services must be knowledgeable of what people want, must be deeply rooted in the values of the organization, and must be knowledgeable about legislative requirements.
Quality Assurance is a process of defining, measuring, and improving quality. The process begins by determining what areas, through measurement, require enhancement and increased responsiveness of service. Quality Assurance determines, suggests, and may execute the necessary training, process, or planning required in achieving the defined quality.
Quality Assurance ensures accountability to the values of the organization and uses the ABC’s of Enhancing a Person’s Life;
Ask the people/families what they want
Be responsive to their goals
Check to see if people/families are still getting what they want
