(210 ILCS 9/150)
    Sec. 150. Alzheimer and dementia programs.
    (a) In addition to this Section, Alzheimer and dementia programs shall comply with all of the other provisions of this Act.
    (b) No person shall be admitted or retained if the assisted living or shared housing establishment cannot provide or secure appropriate care, if the resident requires a level of service or type of service for which the establishment is not licensed or which the establishment does not provide, or if the establishment does not have the staff appropriate in numbers and with appropriate skill to provide such services.
    (c) No person shall be accepted for residency or remain in residence if the person's mental or physical condition has so deteriorated to render residency in such a program to be detrimental to the health, welfare or safety of the person or of other residents of the establishment. The Department by rule shall identify a validated dementia-specific standard with inter-rater reliability that will be used to assess individual residents. The assessment must be approved by the resident's physician and shall occur prior to acceptance for residency, annually, and at such time that a change in the resident's condition is identified by a family member, staff of the establishment, or the resident's physician.
    (d) No person shall be accepted for residency or remain in residence if the person is dangerous to self or others and the establishment would be unable to eliminate the danger through the use of appropriate treatment modalities.
    (e) No person shall be accepted for residency or remain in residence if the person meets the criteria provided in subsections (b) through (g) of Section 75 of this Act.
    (f) An establishment that offers to provide a special program or unit for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders shall:
        (1) disclose to the Department and to a potential or
actual resident of the establishment information as specified under the Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias Special Care Disclosure Act;
        (2) ensure that a resident's representative is
designated for the resident;
        (3) develop and implement policies and procedures
that ensure the continued safety of all residents in the establishment including, but not limited to, those who:
            (A) may wander; and
            (B) may need supervision and assistance when
evacuating the building in an emergency;
        (4) provide coordination of communications with each
resident, resident's representative, relatives and other persons identified in the resident's service plan;
        (5) provide cognitive stimulation and activities to
maximize functioning;
        (6) provide an appropriate number of staff for its
resident population, as established by rule;
        (7) require the director or administrator and direct
care staff to complete sufficient comprehensive and ongoing dementia and cognitive deficit training, the content of which shall be established by rule; and
        (8) develop emergency procedures and staffing
patterns to respond to the needs of residents.
