Advocacy

The Florida Assisted Living Association is an advocate for business owners of assisted living and adult family care home providers. Our mission is to promote excellence in assisted care communities by providing education, standards, advocacy and consumer awareness. We advocate for the ability of owners and operators to provide the care and services needed for our aging population. We proudly represent our members against unwarranted encroachment from every industry and sector. 
 

FALA works closely with the Agency for Health Care Administration, Florida Department of Health, the Department of Elder Affairs,  the Department of Children and Families and the State Fire Marshall's Office to ensure fair and equitable regulation of assisted living and adult family care homes in the State of Florida. Staff closely monitor developments at the Florida Legislature and agencies and advocates for industry involvement every step of the way.

FALA's policies and positions are established by the board of directors that consist of owners of assisted living, adult family care homes, and ancillary providers. However, all issues of major importance to the industry will always be done based on the membership as a whole. If you have a concern, staff are happy to bring it before the Board of Directors or Legislative Committee for inclusion in our legislative proposals. 

If you are interested on serving on our Legislative Committee, we welcome your involvement.
