Why do I need this bond?
By posting an Illinois assisted living and shared housing act bond, principals (assisted living and shared housing facilities) pledge to faithfully perform all requirements of the Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act and comply with all rules of the department made in accordance with the provisions of the act. Some of these provisions include:
- providing residents with an establishment that meets the standards of the Act
- providing all personnel with training and experience
- supplying medication reminders and the supervision of self-administered medication
- only accepting adults for residency that have met all requirements of the Act, passed the mandatory background check and do not cause a threat to other residents or staff
- providing all required medical services
These bonds protect harmed parties from financial loss resulting from the principal’s unethical and unlawful business practices up to the full bond amount.
What’s the fine print?
Illinois assisted living and shared housing act bonds can be released by the department if the surety gives the department written notice via certified mail at least 90 days prior to the effective cancellation date. These bonds remain in full force and effect if the principal remains in compliance with the terms of the surety bond contract.
