The next Assisted Living Resource Guide will be published in January 2019, and we will mail it out to our members and referral sources at that time.

A full-page listing for your member residence in the Assisted Living Resource Guide costs $450. This fee also includes a member residence listing on Mass-ALA’s website which offers your residence exposure to approximately 4,000 unique visits to our site each month. Only residences who purchase a listing will be included in our online directory.

Please check back in August for information on purchasing an advertisement for the 2019 edition.

Please update your community’s information ONLINE using the members-only section of Mass-ALA’s website by September 16, 2018. It is imperative that you make sure:


  1. Your online directory listing is correct. Please check all of your information carefully, including payment options, unit numbers, executive director, etc. (Note: any section that you leave blank will not be searchable online. For example, if someone is searching by amenity or cost and you did not enter that information, your residence will not appear in the search.) We will export the data from our website after the deadline, so any changes made to your residence profile after September 16 will appear online, but will NOT be included in the printed guide. 
  2. You have a current photo uploaded to your page on our website. (We suggest a low-resolution color photo for the web.) This photo is for the online directory only and will not be used in the printed book.
  3. The Resource Guide will be published in COLOR again this year at no additional cost. If you were not in last year’s book, or if you wish to change the photo that appeared last year, please send us a new high-resolution color photo. *NOTE: Unless you email us a new high-resolution photo, the same photo from last year will be published in the book. Email the new photo to Massala@mass-ala.org
    . (You may have to use drop box if the file is big, and the bigger the better!) Please include the name of your residence in the photo name, for example: YourResidenceName.jpg.
  4. Only residences who are Mass-ALA members in good standing and who pay for their listings no later than December 1, 2017 will be included in the guide.


Each residence is responsible for checking to make sure the information is correct. Please log in to make any changes. In most cases, the executive director’s email and password are used for any updates. In some cases, a marketing director or another central corporate person organizes all of the residence listings for your company, so communicating with your colleagues is important. If we do not get either a registration form or an online registration for your listing, your residence will not be included in the Guide. 


If you wish to change the official residence name or contact person for your residence, or you need to make changes to the number of certified assisted living units in your residence, please send an email to Massala@mass-ala.org

(We need to know your correct unit numbers in order to calculate your membership dues for next year. This number should match what EOEA has for your AL and special care units.) Please make any other changes online.

Mass-ALA appreciates your participation in this important initiative. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (781) 622-5999 ext. 100
