The work of the Aging Life Care Professional™/geriatric care manager is rewarding; however, it can be stressful and cause one to feel isolated at times, especially in a small or solo practice. Aging Life Care Association™ (ALCA) Chapters offer opportunities to connect with professional colleagues, providing a venue in which everyone “speaks the same language,” regardless of individual professional disciplines.

Your ALCA Membership includes the valuable benefit of membership in one of our nine regional chapters. Chapters offer excellent opportunities to meet with colleagues on a local or regional basis. In addition to sharing and learning from one another, chapters provide a variety of opportunities for educational and professional growth.
