GHCA has been representing skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers, and SOURCE agencies for over sixty years. Through lobbying efforts, informative educational seminars and operational support, GHCA continues to strive to meet our members’ needs and the best interests of the long term care profession. GHCA offers three main categories of membership. Our Regular Membership includes all licensed skilled nursing facilities. Our Allied Membership includes any SOURCE organization, long term facility licensed as an assisted living community or a personal care facility with 25 beds or more. And our Associate Membership includes any person, firm, or corporation having an interest in the long term care industry but not having ownership interest in or control over an entity (or its related long term care facility or agency) which is eligible for membership as a Regular Member but is not a Regular Member.
As the Georgia State affiliate of the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), GHCA keeps its members abreast on all long term care issues on a national level as well as providing access to all of the resources offered by AHCA/NCAL.
