It can be a daunting task for seniors and families searching for the perfect new home. The “just right” choice may be a modern senior living setting with many retirement amenities, or it may be a smaller “country” style home with rocking chairs on the front porch.

ALAA member-communities are all that! Many are fully-staffed with nurses and have a high level of personal service for frail seniors. Some are country-club environments for very active seniors.

Some are multi-licensed full-service communities that include independent living, assisted living, specialty care assisted living, and rehab and skilled nursing units.

All are licensed by the Alabama Department of Public Health and must meet rigorous inspection standards.

“Specialty Care Assisted Living Facilities” or “SCALF” are assisted living communities specifically developed in Alabama to best serve the needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

ALAA conducts dementia training for caregivers and is a leading advocate for public policy regarding this disease.
