CALA's Clean & Safe Certification

The COVID pandemic 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 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.


CALA facilitated a network for mutual support and, as part of that effort, developed the CALA Clean & Safe Certification program which recognizes communities that are meeting and adhering to Clean & Safe guidelines for Cleaning Protocols,  Organization, Staff, and Resident Considerations.
