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 operators of senior living communities and the seniors and families those communities serve. The more than 500 senior living community providers and allied business members of ALFA exemplify the principles of choice, dignity, and independence for seniors. To support these principles and to enhance quality of life for seniors, ALFA influences public policy, promotes business excellence, and ensures an informed public.
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.
The 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. Additionally, the dues help fund valuable programs and services such as Senior Living Executive magazine, the weekly ALFA Update e-newsletter, the annual ALFA Conference & Expo, and many more. Lastly, 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.
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.
