Stand with us in Creating the Future of Senior Living in Louisiana!
Since its founding in 1999, the Louisiana Assisted Living Association (now known as "LALA"), has expanded and grown to become the primary voice for the families, residents, directors, staff and owners of Assisted Living, Adult Residential Care and Senior living communities across the state. Our Provider Membership include organizations that own, operate, manage and/or develop these communities. Additionally, LALA could not offer quality programs and services without the generous and sustained support from our Industry Partner Members. All association members can rely on these outstanding businesses to provide them with quality services and products.
Our Mission & Guiding Principles
Our mission is centered around SERVICE to assisted living, adult residential care and senior living providers, residents and their families; ADVOCACY on issues related to senior living; and EDUCATION of consumers, providers, lawmakers, regulators and others in the community.
The members of "LALA" are committed to upholding the senior living industry to high standards while enhancing quality of life for each community resident, and senior served across our state.
Preserving Resident Choice And Promoting Dignity In Care Are The Hallmarks Of This Association.
LALA is a state partner of Argentum (previously known as ALFA). As an affiliate, we work with Argentum on national issues impacting your senior living industry and follow their lead with the federal government. Argentum supports LALA and provides updates on developments in other states and in Washington, DC.
Argentum's Core Principles have been endorsed and adopted by the LALA Board of Directors to guide our efforts and shape our public policy. These principles are built on the fact that today, the words: assisted living means more than a service or location. It is a senior living philosophy, centered around choice, independence, dignity, accessibility and quality of life.
Argentum's Senior Living Philosophy:
The philosophy of senior living is unique and sets it apart from institutional settings. This philosophy provides seniors with a home and community based option that is consumer driven. Seniors are integrated into the community at large, and the community is integrated into the senior living environment.The philosophy of senior living supports Argentumâ€™s core principles of choice, independence, dignity, accessibility and quality of life for all seniors.
