CALA, Advocating for and Informing you about Assisted Living in Connecticut.

The Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA), formed in 1995 as Connecticut’s own Assisted Living trade association, promotes and supports both its assisted living provider and associate members through education, strong and active committee work, a regular schedule of industry specific programming, a recurrent calendar of thematic seminars, a quarterly newsletter, legislative and public policy advocacy, and an annual day long conference conveniently held in central Connecticut.

CALA is the only state Assisted Living association to collaborate with, the Hartford Courant, a major media outlet to produce an annual consumer resource guide about Assisted Living.
