Singer Bill to Accomodate Kosher Observant Residents in Day Care Centers Passes Committee

Adult day care centers may soon accommodate the religious dietary needs of individuals thanks to legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer and approved today by the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

“Adult day care centers provide vital services to thousands of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout New Jersey,” said Singer (R-30). “On several occasions, I have heard from constituents that it is difficult to select a proper care facility because many do not accommodate religious dietary needs. My legislation will help rectify that issue by encouraging all adult care centers to do just that.”

Singer’s bill, S-2456, would require an adult day care center to make reasonable efforts to accommodate the religious dietary needs of individuals who are in the care of the center.

“The programs provided by adult care centers are community-based, and give individuals the tools to learn new skills, build long-lasting friendships, and become caring, responsible adults,” added Singer. “Ensuring these relatively modest dietary accommodations is a win for both patients and their families.”
