(OPEN):
DURING "NATIONAL FAMILY-CAREGIVERS MONTH" [NOVEMBER], "A-A-R-P UTAH" IS REMINDING EVERYONE ABOUT THEIR RIGHTS, UNDER THE STATE'S "PATIENT-DESIGNATED CAREGIVER RULE".  THE ORGANIZATION'S LAURA POLACHECK [AS IN "POLITICS" OR "POLYMER"] EXPLAINS...

(POLACHECK):
"
THE RULE REQUIRES HOSPITALS TO PROVIDE LOVED-ONES WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO DESIGNATE SOMEONE AS A FAMILY-CAREGIVER; TO INFORM THE CAREGIVER WHEN THEIR LOVED-ONE IS TO BE DISCHARGED; TO PROVIDE THEM WITH A COPY OF THE WRITTEN DISCHARGE-PLAN; AND TO GIVE THEM THE OPPORTUNITY FOR AN INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE MEDICAL TASKS THAT MIGHT BE REQUIRED WHEN THEIR LOVED-ONE RETURNS HOME.  IN ORDER TO HELP BOTH CAREGIVERS AND LOVED-ONES KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE HOSPITAL--AND WHAT TO ASK FOR--WE NOW OFFER FREE WALLET-CARDS THAT OUTLINE ALL OF THIS INFORMATION.  THAT WAY, BOTH OF THEM WILL HAVE THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION--WHEN THEY NEED IT THE MOST."

(CLOSE):
