Elder Care Alliance
Elder Care Alliance leaders are knowledgeable about the senior living industry and passionate about the older adults we serve – but it doesn’t end there.
Our leaders have a commitment to learning, constantly growing and pushing themselves to find new and better ways to deliver services that nurture the body, mind and spirit of each resident. This commitment extends to our team members, fostering an environment of professional development. Aside from a broad range of training opportunities, Elder Care Alliance’s Cohort program engages new and existing managers in a yearlong program to fortify their leadership and critical thinking skills. In addition, all leaders develop their own professional development plan on an annual basis.
