“Information is power, and the Legislature is empowering millions of family caregivers.” AARP especially commends the bill’s two key sponsors: Senate Health Committee Chair Kemp Hannon and Assemblymember Linda B. Both stood alongside caregivers and advocates throughout the session and worked tirelessly to enlist the support of their colleagues.
“The CARE Act is an excellent way to help people take care of their loved ones when they are released from the hospital.
The Caregiver Advise, Record and Enable Act (S.676 Hannon/A.
1323 Rosenthal) ensures hospital patients can designate a family caregiver and requires hospitals to offer that caregiver instruction and demonstrations of medical tasks they will be expected to provide for their loved ones at home, such as administering multiple medications, dressing wounds and operating medical equipment.
“It helps patients, their caregivers and health care providers by improving patients’ health and reducing unnecessary hospital readmissions and ER visits.” “I am so pleased that my bill to empower and protect New York’s caregivers has passed the Assembly,” said Assemblymember Linda B. “Once this bill becomes law, patients in New York will be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief, safe in the knowledge that their loved ones and family members, the people who will be providing them care at home, will have the support and information they need to be successful.I want to thank AARP for its outstanding advocacy on behalf of New York’s caregivers.” “Caregivers need support,” said Peggy Hernandez of Brooklyn, caregiver for her husband, Carlos, who has Alzheimer’s.
