Indiana Assisted Living Association’s (INALA) mission is to promote the interests of the assisted living industry in Indiana and to enhance the quality of life for the population it serves.
How does Indiana Assisted Living Association serve you and your community?
For decades, INALA has served the public through acting as a teacher, mentor and advocate of assisted living facilities. At the end of 2015, we renewed our focus on meeting the needs of seniors.
While continuing to serve and advocate for assisted living facilities, INALA launched a new website, equipped with a search tool to find facilities near your location, including the amenities and price range you desire.
The new site also offers a cost calculator, a glossary of terms you may encounter while searching for an assisted living facility, as well as resources and information to help you make an educated decision while choosing your or your family member’s new home.

One of Indiana Assisted Living Association’s most important functions is to advocate on behalf of members through interactions with state agencies, legislators and other government representatives.
While the legislative assembly is in session, INALA maintains a constant lobby presence at the State House. Executive Director, Dan Kenyon, monitors legislation proceedings through committee hearings, testifies before committees on issues that impact assisted living residents and providers, and meets individually with legislators to discuss policy.
INALA pays special attention to legislation that impacts health care facilities, assisted living regulations, professional licensing, corporate taxes and health care.
INALA is a State Affiliate of Argentum, formerly the Assisted Living Federation of America which works as an advocacy partner on a national level.
INALA is committed to making sure policymakers understand the impact of policy decisions on seniors receiving care and on assisted living providers.
INALA encourages you to get involved and share your thoughts, experiences, comments with your state and federal legislators. Or, if you have an issue you’d like to see addressed, please don’t hesitate to contact INALA.
