BILL NUMBER:S4432

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the elder law, in relation to rules
and regulations pertaining to the operation of social adult day care
programs

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To ensure that all social adult day programs in the state are subject
to the same oversight by the State Office fox the Aging (SOFA)

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of this bill would remove the requirement that a social
adult day program be the recipient of a grant from SOFA in order to be
subject to regulations promulgated therefore.

JUSTIFICATION:

Currently social adult day programs are regulated by the State Office
for the Aging (SOFA) only if they receive a grant through the Office.
This means that anyone can start a program and be free from any
oversight as long as they never approach the Office for funding. There
has been concern across the state that there are abuses taking place
in programs that do not operate with sufficient staffing and do not
provide adequate services. Families are paying out of pocket for these
programs that are not subject to any oversight. This legislation would
ensure that all programs must comply with regulations promulgated by
SOFA and be overseen as the Office sees fit.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This Act shall take effect immediately.
