Presbyterian Village earns zero-deficiency rating

Fort Scott Presbyterian Village earned a zero-deficiency survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services following its inspection May 23, 2017.

This is the eighth consecutive zero-deficiency survey for Fort Scott Presbyterian Village, and the 10th zero-deficiency rating in the past 15 years.

“It is rare for a provider to have zero-deficiency surveys for so many consecutive surveys. We are so proud of our staff for this outstanding achievement,” said Ginger Nance, executive director. “We know that their dedication to our mission and to our residents created a deficiency-free community. Every employee impacts the outcome of the survey since regulations affect every job position at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village.”

Senior living communities are surveyed by their licensing agency for compliance of regulations established by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. These regulations are designed to ensure a standard of care is met. By meeting this standard, senior living communities are able to renew their licenses and continue to provide care.

“Every day I see our employees go above and beyond in the care they provide,” Nance said. “This recognition is tangible proof of our commitment to providing quality senior care and services based on Christian values. The way you want to live is more than a tagline for Fort Scott Presbyterian Village; it is a culture built on the understanding of compassionate service to seniors—a foundation of trust for families and their loved ones. It’s far more than a job for those of us who work at the Village, it’s a calling, a mission that we are on together.”

Fort Scott Presbyterian Village is an assisted living community, which means it is licensed by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services. Residents have their own private apartments, one or two bedrooms complete with all appliances, and may receive some assistance with activities of daily living. The apartment setting is perfect for a single person or for couples to remain together and age in place with compassionate help always available if and when they need it. The setting is designed for independent seniors, as well. Some apartments have a comfortable patio, and a parking garage is available for those who are active drivers. The main concept is that people can come and go as they please from their home, but help is always available.
