The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) is the largest national association exclusively dedicated to professionally-managed, appropriately licensed, resident-centered, consumer-driven senior living communities and the seniors and families they serve. Founded in 1990 as an association of American assisted living companies, today ALFA serves as the voice for over 400 senior living companies and the seniors and families those communities serve.
ALFA Owner/Operator Membership
Companies operating professionally-managed senior living communities join ALFA because they embrace the resident-centered philosophy of senior living including its core principles and positions. What’s more, each member company pledges to offer a high standard of service. Choosing to tour and move to a community managed by an ALFA member company offers greater peace of mind to seniors and their families seeking quality senior living communities. ALFA encourages families and prospective residents to look for the ALFA member logo when locating communities to tour.
ALFA Owner/Operator Membership is for companies that own and/or operate senior living communities (providers and REITs). New companies interested in joining ALFA may download an overview of membership and also an application to join.
If your company is renewing its membership in ALFA and has not received the membership information, please contact Kari Horesky, ALFA Membership Manager.
ALFA Industry Partner Membership
ALFA invites companies offering products, services and solutions to senior living communities to join as Industry Partner members. Two levels of membership are available, providing your company with an investment level that best matches its interests in senior living. Please download an overview of membership for benefits details. If your company is not currently an ALFA Industry Partner member, you may download the ALFA Industry Partner Membership Application. Existing Industry Partner member companies will receive renewal information in November.
In addition to the many resources that ALFA offers to the entire senior living industry, ALFA membership is most recognized for its invaluable networking opportunities and collaboration among decision makers in the senior living industry.
Your Dues Hard at Work
Companies choosing to join ALFA, whether operators of senior living communities or companies offering products and services to senior living communities, are making an investment in their future and all senior living.
Annual dues fund advocacy and business excellence programs both promoting and protecting senior living and the seniors and families you serve. Your investment ensures regulators and policymakers hear about the work of senior living providers, the principles we champion on behalf of seniors and their families, the “caring hearts” serving seniors every day, and what laws (or proposed laws) are helping or hindering senior living companies from championing quality of life for seniors.
Your investment helps ALFA inform the public about senior living–the features, benefits, value and core principles senior living communities extend to seniors and their families each day.
