Urge Montana State House Representatives to Support Family Caregivers

When you are caring for a family member or friend with serious health issues, it can be tough if someone is hospitalized. When it is time to be discharged, the situation can be confusing for everyone. AARP is urging the legislature to make things easier for family caregivers by passing HB 163.

House Bill 163, the Montana Caregiver Act, sponsored by Representative Geraldine Custer (R) of Forsyth, helps family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home.

It allows hospital patients to designate a caregiver upon admission and provides the designated caregiver with the opportunity to receive crucial information on the post-discharge needs of the patient.

Send an email to your State House Representative asking him or her to vote for HB 163. Or call 1-406-444-4800 to leave a message for your State House Representitive to vote for HB 163.

Urge Your Montana State House Representative to Support Family Cargivers

Dear Representative [Decision Maker],

At some point in life most people generously serve as a caregiver for a family member or friend who faces a significant health issue. I'm urging you to help family caregivers by voting for HB 163, The Montana Caregiver Act, sponsored by Rep. Geraldine Custer of Forsyth.

HB 163 helps family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home. It allows hospital patients to designate a family caregiver upon admission and provides the designated caregiver with the opportunity to receive crucial information on the needs of the patient when they are discharged home or to another facility.





HB 163 is an important bill for the 118,000 Montanans who are currently caregivers. I urge you to support family caregivers by voting for it.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
