Florida Assisted Living Association TC Chapter Award Luncheon
FALA (Florida Assisted Living Association) has been providing advocacy, education, and regulatory support for its members for over 25 years. It is the largest state association representing more than 650 assisted living facilities and adult family care homes and nearly 300 associate members who provide products and services to assisted living.
On January 12, 2021, FALA Treasure Coast Chapter held a heart touching lunch award ceremony to recognize its local fellow healthcare organizations who went above and beyond supporting local ALFs (Assisted Living Facilities) during the most challenging time facing the COVID pandemic. Angella Williams, HR Vice President and Jackie Kendrick, CEO from Treasure Coast Hospice, Nestor Plana, founder, Chairman, and CEO of Independent Living Systems (ILS), Matt Harper, Manager Provider Relations, and Marianne Hall, Regional Account Executive from Florida Community Care, Najam Syed, Owner and President from DME of America, and Allison Walters, Marketing Director from Butterfields were all recognized for their service and support to the local ALF communities by Roshini Lakram, FALA Treasure Coast Chair, along with her Chair leaders, Marcia Styles, Marketing Chair, Lorna Campbell, Treasurer, Bob Antes, Marketing Chair, Annmarie Coleman Public Relations Chair, and Miriam Farquharson.
Services, such as thousands of produce boxes given out to ALFs, lunches provided to ALF residents and staff, and hard-to-find PPEs provided to ALFs, were among some of the great deeds mentioned at the ceremony.
Special thanks to Jim Scarafia, Manager at Stuart Boat House, who provided the upstairs area exclusively, with open windows and enough seating for social distancing to promote a safe environment for all participants.
