Six extraordinary senior living professionals were presented with the 2007 ALFA Hero Awards at the ALFA 2007 Annual Conference and Expo in Dallas last month. The annual competition honors executive directors, staff members, caregivers and volunteers for their commitment to residents in their communities.
