Creativity, innovation and strong values permeate the ways that people are envisioning the future. Visit our member directory to find quality programs and inspiring stories. 

LALA effects policy and advocacy. We offer a growing abundance of educational opportunities, provider connections and public resources for those seeking trustworthy advice about aging. Our sponsors and business members make all of this possible. 

LALA was established in 1999 as the true voice of assisted living services providers in Louisiana. Our association has grown across states to represent a strong and undiluted voice for seniors in policy, education and public arenas. We advance policies and promote practices that support, enables and empowers people to live fully as they age.

We welcome your involvement and ideas to shape the future of senior living.
