Fort Scott PMMA earns zero-deficiency rating for community licensing

Fort Scott Presbyterian Village earned a zero-deficiency survey from the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) following its annual licensing inspection February 10, 2021.

This survey continues a history of exemplary surveys for the community. Since 2003, the community has received 14 deficiency-free licensing surveys.

“Not only is it rare for a community to receive so many zero-deficiency surveys, it is especially noteworthy to receive while fighting a pandemic,” said Ginger Nance, executive director. “These survey results demonstrate how seriously each of our employees takes our mission to provide quality senior services guided by Christian values to heart. 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 KDADS. 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. Surveys are conducted on average every 18 months.

“Every day I see our employees go above and beyond in the care they provide,” Nance said. “We truly see our mission to be creating a home for the seniors in our care. 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.”

Fort Scott Presbyterian Village is an assisted living community, which means it is licensed by KDADS. 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 not only suitable for those who need physical assistance but 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 in accordance with county health guidance related to COVID-19 restrictions, but help is always available.
