Thank you to everybody who participated in our CALAbration – Virtual Assisted Living Conference & Trade Show in 2020!

We were pleased to be able to honor some special individuals… some heroes among us… and the Chefs and culinary teams behind the scenes fueling our communities.

As many of you know, within every community, there are individuals who go above and beyond to improve, uplift and enrich the lives of others. Whether through acts of kindness, the ability to bring laughter through protective masks, or simply being present with a caring attitude, these individuals make the community better for all.

Since we could not be together in person this year to sample our Chefs’ tasty creations or honor our local heroes, we thought we could celebrate these individuals for their contributions onscreen. We are truly pleased to share the following commemorative videos honoring these individuals.

Covid-19 Update

CALA wishes to acknowledge professionals in senior living for their caring and compassionate hearts. The global pandemic has changed life dramatically for every senior living community. CALA members have demonstrated excellence by providing the highest level of service to ensure the health and safety of residents and staff throughout this unprecedented time.

CALA has facilitated a network for mutual support by communicating regularly with members with timely state and national regulatory guidance, and hosting weekly conference calls with Executive Directors & RN ALSA Supervisors.  Through this collaboration, Connecticut senior living communities have developed countless innovations and protocols to keep residents safe, engaged, well-nourished and connected to their loved ones.

CALA is honored to be leading the way for Connecticut’s senior living providers as we work together to overcome challenges and find new ways to bring solutions and joy to the hearts of those we serve.
