AN ACT relating to authorizing the establishment of  a  long  term  care
  community  in Columbia county known as Camphill Ghent, Inc. to provide
  integrated services to certain persons

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1.  Legislative intent. New York state has long recognized the
need  to  support  a  full  continuum of long term care services for the
aging that supports the ability  of  seniors  to  remain  in  integrated
community  settings for as long as possible. The state has offered simi-
lar support to allow persons with developmental disabilities  and  their
caregivers  to  live in community settings, but for the most part not in
integrated housing arrangements. Further, the state does  not  currently
support  a  service  model  that  adequately  supports  the increasingly
sophisticated long term health care needs of persons with  developmental
disabilities  who  are  elderly  in an integrated community setting that
includes elderly persons with developmental disabilities and others.
  The Legislature finds that the Camphill movement has a long  tradition
of  providing  services  to  persons  with developmental disabilities in
fully integrated community settings through  its  worldwide  network  of
planned, intentional communities serving persons with and without devel-
opmental  disabilities.  Much  more than providers of basic services for
people with developmental disabilities, Camphill  communities  offer  an
environment  where people of all ages and abilities share home, work and
social activities and enjoy a  rich  artistic  and  cultural  life  with
opportunities  for  spiritual  expression  and  dignified work. Camphill
communities rely on both paid  and  volunteer  workers  to  ensure  that
persons with developmental disabilities can realize their full potential
through  constructive and productive interactions as fully participatory
members of their communities.
