CARF Accreditation Preparation


Consultants with Aimee Graves & Associations will work with you, your staff, and other stakeholders who will contribute to your organization's preparation for the accreditation of its own programs and services. Our chief survey consultant has more than 20 years of experience of working the standards.

We believe in using technology to maintain a high-paced accrediting preparation process while keeping expenses down. We will do a lot of our work with you using Zoom and Microsoft Teams. That includes orienting you to the standards, training, conscious conversations design, and more. We use web-based technology to save you money on travel expenses.
