The American Health Care Association (AHCA) and National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) are federations of state health care organizations, together representing 11,000 non-profit and for-profit assisted living, nursing facility, developmentally-disabled and subacute care providers that care for more than 1 million elderly and disabled individuals nationally.
AHCA and NCAL represent the long term care community to the nation at large – to government, business leaders, and the general public. It also serves as a force for change within the long term care field, providing information, education, and administrative tools that enhance quality at every level.
AHCA’s and NCAL’s constituents believe that the individuals they serve are entitled to a supportive environment in which professional and compassionate care is delivered. This belief compels AHCA and NCAL to advocate for individuals who because of social needs, disability, trauma, or illness require services provided in a long term care setting, while also advocating for the long term care provider community.
AHCA and NCAL are committed to developing necessary and reasonable public policies which balance economic and regulatory principles to support quality care and quality of life, and is dedicated to professionalism and ethical behavior among all who provide long term care.
