Finding the right assisted living community can be hard. There are many choices and options to consider, and you certainly do not want to leave the care of your loved one in the hands of just anyone. In choosing the right assisted living facility, it is common to have some reservations about the facility. You want to make sure that it will be committed to giving your loved one the kind of quality care that they deserve.
With so many available assisted living communities, finding the right one can be kind of overwhelming. This is where the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) comes into the picture.
What is the Assisted Living Federation of America?
Founded in 1990, the ALFA is dedicated to the mission of enhancing the quality of life for seniors. As an active voice for senior living communities, they meet their goal of encouraging continuous advancement and growth in the senior care industry by providing the following:
