Training for Long-term Care Professionals

ALF Administrators

Assisted living facilities (ALF’s) are residential care facilities that provide housing, meals, personal care and supportive services to older persons and disabled adults who are unable to live independently. ALF’s are intended to be a less costly alternative to more restrictive, institutional settings for individuals who do not require 24-hour nursing supervision. ALF’s are regulated in a manner so as to encourage dignity, individuality, and choice for residents, while providing reasonable assurance for their safety and welfare.

All ALF administrators are required to take the ALF Core Training Course and pass a Competency Test. The course must be taken from an ALF Core Training Provider registered with the Department of Elder Affairs.
