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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

offer an establishment as an assisted living establishment or shared housing
establishment as defined by the Act within this State unless and until he or
she obtains a valid license, which remains unsuspended, unrevoked, and
unexpired. No public official, agent, or employee may place any person in, or

Act that is being operated without a valid license. No public official, agent,
or employee may place the name of an unlicensed establishment that is required
to be licensed under this Act on a list of programs. An entity that operates
as an assisted living or shared housing establishment as defined by this Act

the Nursing Home Care Act. No entity shall use in its
name or advertise
"assisted living" unless licensed as an assisted living establishment under
this Act or as a shelter care facility under the Nursing Home Care Act that
also meets the definition of an assisted living establishment under this Act,
except a shared housing establishment licensed under this Act may advertise
