The Assisted Living Federation of America this week announced it has partnered with the first-ever senior living association in India. ALFA will work with the new Indian group to develop its senior living program to benefit the country’s consumers, the organization said.
“The Indian senior living sector is still in its infancy and is expected to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years,” said ALFA Director Steven Vick, co-founder and CEO of Signature Senior Living. “Senior living providers in India can learn a tremendous amount from the fits and starts we had when senior living was in its infancy in the U.S.”
The announcement comes following the first-time Retirement Living World India conference, held in December in New Delhi. There, industry leaders announced the formation of the Indian senior living group coined Association Senior Living India (ASLI).
“ALFA, working closely with ASLI, can contribute to their success by sharing with our partners in India what we’ve learned over the past 20 years,” Vick said.
