Support Family Caregivers. Support the CARE Act.

AARP is fighting to support family caregivers - but we need your help. Please use the form below to send a message to your state representative to urge them to support the CARE Act, LRB 3637. The CARE Act features three important provisions: 

 

  • The name of the family caregiver is recorded when a loved one is admitted into the hospital
  • The family caregiver is notified if the loved one is being discharged to another facility or back home
  • The facility must provide an explanation and live instruction of the medical tasks - such as medication management, injections ,wound care, and transfers - that the family caregiver will perform at home. 

 

These provisions ensure that family caregivers are able to properly care for their loved ones. 

 

If you have a personal story related to caregiving that supports the need for passing the CARE Act, please share that story in the text box within the letter to the right, and it will be sent directly to your legislator. 

 

Thank your for your help on this critical issue.
