Annual Excellence Awards

2023 Massachusetts Assisted Living Association Annual Excellence Awards Winners

Each year Mass-ALA celebrates the shining stars in assisted living at our Annual Excellence Awards. This year the event was sold out and our special guest emcee for the evening was , award-winning former Boston Globe & ESPN journalist Jackie MacMullan. She shared some hilarious and heartwarming anecdotes about her enduring decades-long friendship with the late former Boston Celtics Coach & Team President, Red Auerbach. However, what truly resonated was Jackie’s decision about her choice to relocate her parents to an assisted living residence in Massachusetts – and the overwhelmingly positive experiences they both had. We also were beyond thrilled to honor the late Larry Gerber, Founder and President & CEO of EPOCH Senior Living with our 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award. Larry spent over 40 years dedicating his career to working with and developing senior living and care options for older adults. Larry worked closely with Mass-ALA and became Chair of the Board of Directors in 2021. Mass-ALA was honored to celebrate the nominees and the winners who go above and beyond their jobs working and caring for older adults at the Awards Dinner. These individuals who were anonymously selected as winners are true shining stars in the assisted living industry and should be celebrated every day.
