Massachusetts Nursing Home
Regulations, Thanks to Advocates

The Massachusetts Public Health Council approved regulations in February 2014 governing the delivery of care for those with Alzheimer's and other dementias in long term care/nursing homes. These regulations are the result of campaigning and advocacy of the Alzheimer's Association and thousands of families and individuals who care about quality of care. The regulations took effect in March 2014.
