About West Virginia Assisted Living Association

Formed in 2001, WVALA leads assisted living providers, related businesses and those who serve the industry.  Assisted living is a preferred option in the care continuum for the elderly.  As more Americans live longer, more families are seeking compassionate, non-institutional care environments for their elderly family members.
The  goal of the association is to make assisted living in West Virginia the best it can be and enhance the quality of life for residents by promoting the development of high standards for the assisted living industry in the state.  The association will help to educate the public and increase their awareness of assisted living and provide education and training to owners, administrators and staff.
