Nursing Home Laws Changing

Gov. Rick Snyder signed Senate Bill 886 into law on Dec. 30, 2014 which seeks to modernize, increase protections and add transparency to the regulation of continuing care retirement communities which include nursing homes and adult foster care facilities.

The law is called the "Continuing Care Community Disclosure Act" and provides for the regulation of continuing care communities including retirement communities, nursing homes, home care agencies and hospices.

This law recognizes that people need various levels of care throughout the aging process and attempts to regulate the process of providing this care.
