about us

The Florida Senior Living Association represents companies that operate professionally managed senior living communities offering independent, assisted living, and memory care services. FSLA represents professionally-managed providers who care for more than 17 residents in one location.

We are the advocate for professionally managed senior living communities that provide choice, dignity, independence and quality of life for Florida seniors.

Florida Senior Living Association represents its members before the Florida Legislature, Governor’s Executive Agencies, and other state and local entities where senior living policy is decided. Florida Senior Living Association also offers high-level executive training and continuing education to its members. As an association, our values are as follows:

  • We will be fully responsive to the evolving needs of senior community living.
  • We are respectful, transparent and strategic in all endeavors.

Assisted Living

Assisted living is a long-term care option that combines housing, meals, health and wellness programs and activities, support services and additional health care as needed. This program is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management, and transportation, or assistance with bathing, dressing or other activities of daily living. Some residents may have memory disorders or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges.

Independent Living

Independent living is designed for seniors who require little or no assistance with the activities of daily living. These units provide services for residents such as housekeeping, laundry, and meals. Residents of independent units may have some home health care services provided by in-house staff or an outside agency. Residential living setting for senior adults may or may not provide voluntary hospitality, activity or supportive services.

Memory Care

Memory care communities can be a stand-alone buildings or may consist of a special wing within an assisted living community. Memory care communities provide programming specific to the population being served and are staffed with individuals who are specifically trained to work with individuals who have some form of dementia. These communities have additional security and other specific architectural features that keep individuals with dementia safe.
