August 2022 Newsletter

“The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Over the years, far too many of our precious seniors have been neglected, their stories forgotten. We know this doesn’t have to be the case.

We believe in our seniors, and value their experiences and the wisdom they have to share. They have guided and inspired generations, and they are a vital part of our communities.

This year, National Senior Citizens Day is August 21. We want to encourage you to take the time out to honor the senior citizens in your life. We love seniors and we are here to support all those who care for them.

At the RAL Academy, we are committed to helping provide the best level of care and comfort in senior living homes throughout the country.

Our goal is to train and support the entrepreneurs who go out and build quality residential assisted living homes that shelter and protect our nation’s seniors.

We seek to teach and empower caregivers and RAL homeowners to raise the standards in our industry. Our enormous community of students and partners has made significant strides and there is so much more we can accomplish… together.

Do Good and Do Well.
