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.

    “Family is Forever” as this year’s theme for National Assisted Living Week.

    ​Established by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) in 1995, National Assisted Living Week® provides a unique opportunity for residents, their loved ones, staff, volunteers, and the surrounding communities to recognize the role of assisted living in caring for America’s seniors and individuals with disabilities. The annual observance encourages assisted living communities around the country to offer a variety of events and activities to celebrate the individuals they serve, as well as to help educate members of the public about this distinctive aspect of long term care.
