Welcome to The Virginia Assisted Living Association
The Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to providing advocacy, communication, education, and resources for Virginia's assisted living industry.
VALA's members represent the entire spectrum of the industry: providers of both non-profit and for-profit, and large and small assisted living communities. VALA also welcomes Industry Partners - companies, government agencies, and individuals that provide a service to, or have an interest in, assisted living in Virginia.
The VALA Career Career Center exists as an additional benefit for assisted living providers to seek qualified candidates for all positions relative to operating an assisted living community in Virginia. Positions that are posted may include those for administrators, executive directors, nurses, medication aides, maintenance staff, accounting managers, dietary staff, etc. Send in your job announcements today!

ATTENTION: Licensed Assisted Living Administrators
VALA has received numerous calls and e-mails from assisted living facilities who are transitioning from one ALF administrator to another but need time to get the new administrator licensed. We are collecting resumes and contact information of qualified, licensed assisted living administrators who may be willing to help out transitioning ALFs by serving as the Administrator of Record during the transitional periods. Some relocations may be necessary.
If you are a licensed assisted living administrator and interested in being included in VALA's database of potential ALF administrators, then please send your resume and contact information to email@example.com.
If you are a VALA member and seeking a licensed assisted living administrator either permanently or temporarily, please let VALA know.
