2010 ALFA Hero Award Recipients
Heroes are found in senior living communities across the country. They are the executive directors, staff members, nurses, frontline caregivers, and volunteers who do more, give more, and personify the spirit of excellence in senior living care. Everyone knows at least one hero — someone in senior living who has shown extraordinary courage and leadership — someone who has risen above his or her daily duties to improve the quality of life for residents.
This year we honor six Heroes chosen among 900 nominations for embracing the assisted living philosophy and serving as true representatives of the thousands of people who choose to serve seniors as a profession. Learn more about their stories below. Watch and Share the 2010 ALFA Hero videos!
