SECTION 146.200 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Section 146.200 General Description
a) The Public Aid Code [305 ILCS 5/5-5.01a] calls for the Department to establish and provide oversight for a program of supportive living facilities (SLFs) that seeks to promote independence, dignity, respect and well-being for residents in the most cost effective manner. When submitting an application for participation in the Supportive Living Program, each SLF shall designate which population it will serve, either:
1) persons with a disability who are 22 to 64 years of age; or
2) persons who are 65 years of age and over who meet the requirements described in Section 146.220.
b) An SLF is a residential setting in Illinois that provides or coordinates flexible personal care services, 24 hour supervision and assistance (scheduled and unscheduled), activities, and health related services with a service program and physical environment designed to minimize the need for residents to move within or from the setting to accommodate changing needs and preferences; has an organizational mission, service programs and a physical environment designed to maximize residents' dignity, autonomy, privacy and independence; and encourages family and community involvement.
