La Vida at Mission Viejo’s Justine Ortiz Named CALA “Advocate of the Year”

Justine Ortiz, Executive Director at La Vida at Mission Viejo, has been named “Advocate of the Year” for 2021 by the California Assisted Living Association (CALA).

The distinguished award honors CALA members who actively build relationships with legislators, support CALA’s policy priorities and demonstrate a commitment to grassroots action.

In recognizing Ortiz, the advocacy group’s President & CEO, Sally Michael, praised her for “demonstrating a strong commitment to building lasting and meaningful relationships with state legislators and their staff. Whether it was hosting your legislator at your community or working with CALA to advocate for senior living, you have gone above and beyond, especially during these challenging times.”

Ortiz will be honored during a virtual awards ceremony on Advocacy Day (April 5th).

CALA focuses on representing communities that provide personalized care to residents while promoting choice, independence and dignity, and represents members before the California Legislature, Department of Social Service and other state entities involved in the development of senior living policies.

“I’m truly honored and humbled by the award,” said Ortiz. “By working on behalf of CALA to educate the community-at-large, we can improve the lives of senior living residents – today and into the future.”

La Vida at Mission Viejo  offers independent and assisted living lifestyles and an engaging blend of comfort, style, fine dining, endless social and recreational opportunities and wellness programs. For more information, please click here.
