New Jersey Statutes, Title: 26, HEALTH AND VITAL STATISTICS

    Chapter 2M: Alzheimer's Disease training

      Section: 26:2M-9: Findings, declarations.

           The legislature finds and declares:

a. There is a critical need to establish specialized programs for clients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Alzheimer's disease is an organic, progressive brain disorder which may result in its final stages in the complete mental and physical disability of a client.

b. There are few services specifically designed to meet the unique needs of Alzheimer's clients and their families, and it is imperative that these services be developed as soon as possible.

c. There is a further need to develop training programs for professionals and other persons providing care for Alzheimer's clients. Specialized programs for an Alzheimer's client population will provide an optimum setting for developing and implementing these training programs.

P.L. 1988, c. 114, s. 1.
