ADVANCING SENIOR CARE EXCELLENCE:
*Please note, ALFA does not condone the term “assisted living facilities" because it does not convey the philosophy of assisted living. It is essential assisted living vocabulary reinforces choice, dignity and independence. ALFA challenges all assisted living and senior living professionals to eliminate certain words and terms like "assisted living facilities" when referring to senior housing options, and instead use terms like "assisted living communities". View more taboo terms.
There are currently two categories of ALFA membership – companies that operate and manage senior living communities and allied companies that serve with senior living operators. Senior living executives and senior living professionals who work at companies and organizations that join ALFA automatically receive the benefits of membership. Learn more about ALFA Membership.
