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.
Our mission is clear: to recognize, promote and increase professionalism and standards of excellence in communities throughout the state; and, to create a regulatory environment that maximizes flexibility and allows senior living providers to offer a variety of quality care options and choices to consumers.
Benefits of Provider Membership
Resources and Advanced Training Opportunities
Florida Senior Living Association provides its members with the resources necessary to meet state requirements and more.

FSLA is an approved provider through the Florida Board of Nursing and the Florida Board of Nursing Home Administrators.
Representation before the Legislature and Regulatory Agencies
Our association is extremely active in the legislative and regulatory processes, and we have successfully created significant and positive policy changes since we were established six short years ago. We have worked hard to earn a reputation as the premiere trusted association for the industry, and we advocate on our members’ behalf on a continuous basis with the legislature, state agencies and other stakeholder groups.
Access to Proactive Counsel, Advocacy and Strategy
When you have an issue, we’ll not only help you resolve it, we’ll look for proactive ways to prevent it from reoccurring in the future. This includes advocating on your behalf with state and local agencies, drafting and passing proactive legislation, and providing input into the regulatory process.
GRASSROOTS AND COMMUNICATIONS
The association provides ongoing communications including alerts, monthly newsletters, regulatory updates, and development of a grassroots networking and outreach program.
Assistance with Business-Minded Solutions
Our members may have communities throughout Florida or in multiple locations in other states. That’s why FSLA meets in person several times per year and holds monthly conference calls with other state association executives to keep up with issues happening throughout the country.

Our members can reach us immediately – 24/7 if necessary. We have quick-action expert staff and consultants ready to respond to operational, regulatory, life safety, as well as media relations, and emergency preparedness issues.
