Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

HEALTH FACILITIES AND REGULATION
(210 ILCS 9/) Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act.

210 ILCS 9/1

    (210 ILCS 9/1)
    Sec. 1. Short title. This Act may be cited as the Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act.

210 ILCS 9/5

    (210 ILCS 9/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative purpose. The purpose of this Act is to permit the development and availability of assisted living establishments and shared housing establishments based on a social model that promotes the dignity, individuality, privacy, independence, autonomy, and decision-making ability and the right to negotiated risk of those persons; to provide for the health, safety, and welfare of those residents residing in assisted living and shared housing establishments in this State; to promote continuous quality improvement in assisted living; and to encourage the development of innovative and affordable assisted living establishments and shared housing with service establishments for elderly persons of all income levels. It is the public policy of this State that assisted living is an important part of the continuum of long term care. In support of the goal of aging in place within the parameters established by this Act, assisted living and shared housing establishments shall be operated as residential environments with supportive services designed to meet the individual resident's changing needs and preferences. The residential environment shall be designed to encourage family and community involvement. The services available to residents, either directly or through contracts or agreements, are intended to help residents remain as independent as possible. Assisted living, which promotes resident choice, autonomy, and decision making, should be based on a contract model designed to result in a negotiated agreement between the resident or the resident's representative and the provider, clearly identifying the services to be provided. This model assumes that residents are able to direct services provided for them and will designate a representative to direct these services if they themselves are unable to do so. This model supports the principle that there is an acceptable balance between consumer protection and resident willingness to accept risk and that most consumers are competent to make their own judgments about the services they are obtaining. Regulation of assisted living establishments and shared housing establishments must be sufficiently flexible to allow residents to age in place within the parameters of this Act. The administration of this Act and services provided must therefore ensure that the residents have the rights and responsibilities to direct the scope of services they receive and to make individual choices based on their needs and preferences. These establishments shall be operated in a manner that provides the least restrictive and most homelike environment and that promotes independence, autonomy, individuality, privacy, dignity, and the right to negotiated risk in residential surroundings. It is not the intent of the State that establishments licensed under this Act be used as halfway houses for alcohol and substance abusers.

Living units designated by the establishment as a licensed living unit shall, for the purposes of this Section, be referred to as a licensed living unit. An establishment utilizing a floating license must have staff adequate to meet the scheduled and unscheduled needs of the residents residing in licensed living units within the establishment.

A living unit may only be designated as a licensed unit if the living unit and the living unit's resident meet the requirements of this Act and its rules. All mandatory services must be made available to residents of licensed living units, and residents of licensed living units may receive any optional services permitted under the establishment's license. Establishments may only provide services under this Act in the individual living units designated as licensed units. Designation as a licensed unit may be temporary to accommodate a resident's changing needs without requiring the resident to move.
    An establishment with a floating license must keep a current written list of those units designated under the floating license. If a resident elects to receive services in a unit that is not licensed and the unit qualifies for licensure, the establishment must notify the resident that the unit must be licensed and the requirements of this Act must be met before services can be provided to residents in that unit. Upon the initiation of an initial licensing inspection, annual inspection, or complaint investigation, the establishment shall provide to the Department a list of the units designated under the floating license in which residents are receiving services subject to this Act.

        (3) personnel insufficient in number or unqualified
    
by training or experience to properly care for the residents;

    (c) The establishment shall attempt to resolve with the resident or the resident's representative, if any, circumstances that if not remedied have the potential of resulting in an involuntary termination of residency and shall document those efforts in the resident's file. This action may occur prior to or during the 30 day notice period, but must occur prior to the termination of the residency. In emergency situations as defined in Section 10 of this Act, the requirements of this subsection may be waived.
    (d) A request for a hearing shall stay an involuntary termination of residency until a decision has been rendered by the Department, according to a process adopted by rule. During this time period, the establishment may not terminate or reduce any service for the purpose of making it more difficult or impossible for the resident to remain in the establishment.
    (e) The establishment shall offer the resident and the resident's representative, if any, residency termination and relocation assistance including information on available alternative placement. Residents shall be involved in planning the move and shall choose among the available alternative placements except when an emergency situation makes prior resident involvement impossible. Emergency placements are deemed temporary until the resident's input can be sought in the final placement decision. No resident shall be forced to remain in a temporary or permanent placement.
    (f) The Department may offer assistance to the establishment and the resident in the preparation of residency termination and relocation plans to assure safe and orderly transition and to protect the resident's health, safety, welfare, and rights. In nonemergencies, and where possible in emergencies, the transition plan shall be designed and implemented in advance of transfer or residency termination.

        (4) provide coordination of communications with each
    
resident, resident's representative, relatives and other persons identified in the resident's service plan;

maximize functioning;
        (6) provide an appropriate number of staff for its
    
resident population, as established by rule;
