One way ALFA serves our members is to uncover ways to help them reduce their cost of doing business. While national senior living providers benefit from economies of scale due to their size, reach and corporate purchasing expertise, regional and local providers of senior living generally do not enjoy these same economic benefits. However, as a collective through ALFA, providers of all size have the opportunity to enjoy economies of scale by using companies participating in the ALFA Senior Living Business Services Program.ALFA Business Services offer unique solutions through experienced partners to help you raise the bar for excellence at your company. Consider these programs:
