‘Argentum – Expanding Senior Living’ reflects the evolution of the organization and industry.
Alexandria, Virginia – The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA), which advocates for excellence in senior living, today introduced its new name and logo. The new name, Argentum, reflects the organization’s expanded direction, priorities and focus.
“Since ALFA’s formation 25 years ago, the senior living industry has undergone many changes, and is primed for many more as baby boomers begin to use our services,” said Argentum President & CEO James Balda. “Our brand transformation better represents where the industry is today as well as our vision for the future.”
Argentum, derived from the Latin word for silver, conveys strength and a sense of gravitas while giving a nod to the “silver generation” Argentum’s members serve. The new brand:
• Represents a diverse industry. No single word represents the panoply of products and services offered by Argentum’s members; thus, the new name provides flexibility to allow the industry and the association itself to grow.
• Is industry facing, but also consumer friendly. Argentum signals strength, maturity and a sense of importance – traits that resonate with both businesses and consumers.
• Celebrates the passion and commitment of senior living professionals. It’s forward looking.
Argentum’s tagline is “Expanding senior living,” which speaks to a variety of audiences while enforcing the organization’s mission to increase the visibility and acceptance of senior living as an option that people choose – not just need. On both a state and federal level, Argentum is a critical and respected leader in the industry, supporting the business operations and growth of its members.
Although the organization’s brand, logo and tagline have changed to better represent its role within this dynamic industry, Argentum’s mission remains the same: members exemplify the principles of choice, dignity and independence for seniors. To support these principles and to enhance quality of life for older adults, Argentum influences public policy, promotes business excellence and ensures an informed public. ALFA will officially transition to the Argentum brand on December 1 at its Chief Executive Summit in Scottsdale, AZ.
“It has never been a more exciting time to be working in the senior living industry,” said Argentum Board Chair Brenda J. Bacon. “Argentum represents everything we are as an organization, as well as everything we want to be.”
Argentum is the largest national association dedicated to professionally managed, resident-centered senior living communities and the seniors and families they serve. Since 1990, Argentum has advocated for choice, accessibility, independence, dignity and quality of life for all seniors.

Social Security Regional Commissioner in Atlanta
In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke about his dream of an America where equality was more than a concept—where it was an everyday reality.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
His dream struck a chord with many people and inspired a nation. It shined a light on the ideal that every citizen should have equal opportunity to prosper and succeed.
As we remember Dr. King and his dream for America, take a moment to reflect on your dreams for yourself and your family. What are the things that you want for your future? Do you see yourself enjoying retirement someday?
With some planning, that dream can come true. The best way to keep your retirement dreams on track is by opening a my Social Security account. A my Social Security account is an excellent tool that helps you plan for the future. It lets you verify your earnings on your personal Social Security Statement—because your future retirement benefit depends on your earnings throughout your career. You can view your Statement at any time, giving you a good picture of what your future benefits will be. When you are ready to retire, you can even go online to apply for benefits from your home or office.
And the advantages of having a my Social Security account don’t stop after you retire. Once you start receiving benefits, you can manage them with a my Social Security account. You can get an instant benefit verification letter, check your benefit and payment information, change your address and phone number, and start or change your direct deposit information—all online.
Setting up a my Social Security account is quick, secure, and easy. Millions of Americans already have accounts. In fact, someone opens one about every 6 seconds. Join the crowd and sign up today at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
It’s the stuff dreams are made of.
