Thank You for Supporting the Ohio Caregiving Act!

More than 1.4 Million Ohioans are caring for parents, spouses or other loved ones, helping them live safely and independently at home. These family caregivers bear a huge responsibility and fortunately, thanks to our elected leaders, there will be a new state law to help them. The recently passed Ohio Caregiving Act, makes sure caregivers are recognized when their loved ones go into the hospital, notified when the patient will be released, and given the instruction they need for continued care before their loved one returns home. AARP Ohio fought for the Ohio Caregiving Act because supporting family caregivers is a top priority for all of us.Share your thanks with state legislators for supporting family caregivers.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Thank you for supporting Ohio's greatest support system: family caregivers.

Thank you for passing the Ohio Caregiving Act, a commonsense solution that will help the 1.4 million family caregivers in Ohio as they help their older parents, spouses, and other loved ones. Because of you, family caregivers will be recognized when their loved ones go into the hospital and given the instruction they need to safely help their loved ones stay at home.

Your support sends a clear message to Ohio's family caregivers that you value their efforts and understand the important role they play in helping their loved ones live at home where they want to be.

Thank you again for passing the Ohio Caregiving Act!
