BILL NUMBER:S3968

TITLE OF BILL:

An act to amend the elder law, in relation to establishing a dementia
and Alzheimer's disease program database

PURPOSE:

This bill would create a program database on the State Office for the
Aging website with up-to-date information on program, methodologies
and services provided statewide for persons suffering from dementia or
Alzheimer's disease.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends the Elder Law to provide the Dementia and
Alzheimers's disease program database. The director, in conjunction
with the Commissioner of Health, shall develop criteria to determine
if a program is successful to be included in the database. The
database shall be accessible to the public on the State Office for the
Aging website and shall include but not be limited to names and
contact information for programs; description of programs; and the
geographic location in which the program is provided or offered.

Section 2 provides for the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

There are many programs across the state that are designed to assist
and support individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Innovative ideas are implemented at the local level, but it is
difficult for groups in other areas of the state to find out about
them. Information about these innovative and successful programs
should be available so that their success can be replicated in other
areas.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2013-14: A.9495 Passed Assembly

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect one year after it shall have become a law.
