The Topic for the April 5 session is the proposal to incorporate adult disabled protective services into the Elder Abuse and Neglect Program (Representative Harris Bill HB 948, and Senator William R. Haine SB 1164).  The session will cover the background on why this change is necessary, the proposed changes to programs, the status of the legislation, the issues that needed to be resolved (or are being resolved), the costs, and the meaning of this expansion (from the perspective of the older persons, and the disabled persons who will be served).  This legislation also has significance to national and state directions, such as the Aging and Disability Resource Center, Elder Justice Act, Illinois Commitment to Managed Care, and others. We hope to see you there!
