09 Apr: Rice Bill To Improve Access To Information About Adult Day Care Facilities Becomes Law

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Ronald L. Rice to require the State Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) to post on its Website information on long-term care and adult day care facilities became law today.

“This law will make it easier for our citizens to investigate long-term care and adult day care centers before selecting which facility is right for them or for their loved one,” said Senator Rice, D-Essex. “It’s important that New Jersyans utilize the Website and report violations at these facilities so that we make sure that our older residents are being cared for properly.”
