Murrieta, CA (May 28, 2013) – The Florida Assisted Living Federation of America (Florida – ALFA) and Care and Compliance Group (CCG) have formed a training partnership to bring comprehensive, affordable staff training tools and online education options to assisted living providers in Florida.

A featured component of the partnership is the development of a blended live and online course that meets the state required Core Training for assisted living administrators. This will allow participants more flexibility, convenience of using an online platform, and the opportunity to learn and review the course materials in-person with ALF trainer, Michael Karban, Director of Education for Florida ALFA, who has more than 25 years of teaching experience. “We realize that today’s busy administrators are looking for practical solutions to meet their training needs. Blending both online and live training into one comprehensive program allows us to do just that,” said Josh Allen, RN, CEO of Care and Compliance Group.

  1. I read with great interest the letter written by Gail Matillio in today’s Ledger. I have worked in both an assisted living with geriatric residents and mental health residents. There is a vast difference in these facilities. Geriatric residents with memory issues are very “happy” in their world and just crave attention and love. It is up to the staff to try to provide both of these things since so many have no one that comes to visit them

    The mental health residents are usually medicaid residents with little or no funds of their own (at least in the facility I worked in). They mostly spend all day sitting outdoors and smoking. Waiting from one meal to the other. When they are medicated properly they are wonderful people. They are wonderful people anyway but sometimes misguided.

    I have often thought that the world “facility” should be changed to “center”. Facility has such an institutional sound to it. Thank you for listening.
