BILL NUMBER:S5339

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend chapter 779 of the laws of 1986, amending the social services
law relating to authorizing services for non-residents in adult
homes, residences for adults and enriched housing programs, in relation
to extending the provisions thereof for three years

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to continue the program which authorizes
the provision of services for nonresidents in adult homes, residences
for adults and enriched housing programs.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The bill would extend the program which authorizes the provision of
services to non-residents of adult homes, residences for adults and
enriched housing programs from July 1, 2011 to July 1, 2014.

JUSTIFICATION:
Adult homes, residences for adults, and enriched housing programs are
increasingly viewed as potential community-based service providers
for those adults, who are in need of temporary or short-term support
but not residential care. The two most significant non-resident
services available are adult day care and temporary residential
placement (respite). These programs provide a variety of support
services to assist family caregivers in their efforts to maintain
their frail and disabled relatives in the community and prevent
and/or delay institutionalization. The provision of services to
non-residents of adult homes, residences for adults, and enriched
housing programs is one avenue for relief for informal caregivers.
Both services are widely recognized as relieving the stress
associated with the burden of caring for an elderly or impaired
relative.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
