SENATE RESOLUTION



MADAM PRESIDENT:

    I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

        A SENATE RESOLUTION requesting that the Health Finance Commission study adult day services.

    Whereas, With medical advances increasing longevity and catastrophic illness requiring care that families often cannot provide, a need exists for more and better adult day services;

    Whereas, Adult day services programs can provide the patient with much needed socialization and care in a community setting and give the caregiver a respite from the demands of caregiving; and

    Whereas, However, it is the responsibility of state government to protect the patient: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the Health Finance Commission is requested to study adult day services, including requirements, rules, and regulations on operating an adult day services program, and to report its findings to the General Assembly.
