ALFA Members in Article About Home-Care Services Offered by Senior Living Companies
Alexandria, VA — An article in The Wall Street Journal (“A New Twist on Assisted Living,” May 18, 2006) features members of the Assisted Living Federation of America — Intercontinental Services (Martinez, California), Silverado Senior Living (San Juan Capistrano, California), and Sunrise Senior Living (McLean, Virginia).
Wall Street Journal reporter Elizabeth Bernstein contacted ALFA when researching the story, which looks at the growing popularity of expanded services offered by senior living companies — particularly home-care services and programs that provide seniors access to assisted living community amenities, such as exercise classes and field trips.
“… a growing number of companies that run assisted living or nursing homes are offering an array of nonmedical services to elderly people who want to remain in their houses,” Bernstein wrote. “Some companies even promise that their home-care clients will get preferential treatment in securing a live-in spot at the facilities that have long waiting lists.”
