Frequently asked questions

How can an audit apply to wellness?
Wellness services and programs may be delivered through separate functions and departments, yet they all work together to enhance quality of life for residents, non-resident members and customers. An audit is the objective process to identify the status of wellness across the organization.

Who conducts the ICAA Wellness Audit?
An audit is a high-level initiative with results impacting the whole organization. An auditor at each community is responsible, joined by audit team members from the business office, culinary, engagement, health care, human resources and fitness.
