At Cedar Hill, we measure our success by the lives we touch in the care we provide for our residents. However, we must admit, it’s gratifying to be recognized by our peers for a job well done. Here are a few of our awards and accolades. Nursing Home Compare

allows consumers to compare information about nursing homes. It contains quality of care information on every Medicare- and M edicaid-certified nursing home in the country, including over 15,000 nationwide. For the third year in a row, Cedar Hill received a 5-star rating. Only 2 continuing care communities in the state received that top rating.

U.S. News Best Nursing Homes

Every year U.S. News highlights the top nursing homes in each state in nearly 100 major metropolitan areas. Data for this award is drawn from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. The “Best Nursing Home” designation is given to skilled centers that recently earned an overall rating of five stars, the agency’s highest. Each skilled center is also rated separately on quality of care, health-inspections record, and level of nurse staffing. For the 2nd year in a row, in 2015 we were awarded 5 stars!

In 2015, Cedar Hill was the recipient of the DAIL (Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living) Quality Incentive Award, which recognizes outstanding nursing homes that have met high standards of quality care for their residents. The award is granted based on results of health and life safety surveys, cost effectiveness, a lack of substantiated complaints and resident satisfaction survey results. The award, offered annually to nursing homes in Vermont meeting certain criteria, looks at resident and family satisfaction, state survey results, participation and data entry into the National Advancing Excellence Quality Program, and lack of family complaints.

In 2016 Cedar Hill Founder Mary Louise Sayles was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for her lifetime of service to seniors. In 2017 Cedar Hill won three more awards at the Annual Banquet. See our blog for the full stories.
