1-03-09 - ASSISTED LIVING ASSOCIATION LAUNCHES EDUCATION AFFILIATE
Old Lyme, Connecticut
The Connecticut Assisted Living Association (CALA) recently announced the creation of its education affiliate, the Institute for Senior Living Education (ISLE).

As the representative membership association for Assisted Living providers in the state, CALA seeks to offer an enhanced calendar of education programming with ISLE for Assisted Living professionals and other senior housing and care providers in Connecticut.

“This is a model used successfully in a couple of other states to provide interdisciplinary education for a range of professionals who serve older adults,” stated Christopher Carter, president of CALA.

Among the education offerings to be made available by ISLE, they include a dedicated course for Registered Nurses who work in Assisted Living communities, a leadership course, workshops regarding fire safety, infection control, disaster planning, an annual conference, and an awards program.

Carter further stated, “as a charitable, non-profit organization, ISLE will also be able to receive grant funding, conduct research and ultimately offer scholarships to help expand the number of nurses at a time when the nursing shortage is being felt across the health care continuum.”

CALA and ISLE are located in Old Lyme and serve members throughout the state of Connecticut.
