040822HAO00892SPRINGFIELD – Under a new law by State Senator Adriane Johnson, the Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Services Act is permanently codified and will help ensure individuals receive the highest quality care.

“Residents living with Alzheimer’s have unwavering support in Illinois,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “This law codifies our state’s advocacy and commitment to families affected by the disease.”

The Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias Services Act protects consumers from false advertising claims and makes sure direct-support staff are trained to address issues of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.

Johnson’s new law struck the Act’s upcoming repeal date, meaning staff training requirements are indefinitely enforced to ensure individuals living with a dementia are receiving the highest quality care.

The law, previously Senate Bill 2993, takes immediate effect.
