"
'A-A-R-P' LED THE FIGHT FOR THE 'CARE ACT' IN PENNSYLVANIA, IN ORDER TO HELP FAMILY-CAREGIVERS WHEN THEIR LOVED-ONES GO INTO THE HOSPITAL--AND WHEN THEY RETURN HOME.  IT REQUIRES HOSPITALS TO PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DESIGNATE A CAREGIVER; TO INFORM CAREGIVERS WHEN LOVED-ONES ARE BEING DISCHARGED TO ANOTHER FACILITY, OR BACK HOME; AND TO PROVIDE CAREGIVERS WITH BOTH AN EXPLANATION AND A DEMONSTRATION OF THE MEDICAL-TASKS THAT THE CAREGIVER WILL PERFORM AT HOME.  THIS COMMONSENSE LAW DELIVERS ESSENTIAL SUPPORT TO CAREGIVERS WHO ARE WORKING TIRELESSLY TO CARE FOR AGING PARENTS, SPOUSES, AND OTHER LOVED-ONES--SO THAT THOSE OLDER ADULTS CAN CONTINUE LIVING INDEPENDENTLY, WITH DIGNITY, AT HOME--WHERE THEY WANT TO BE."
