The CARE ACT: Supporting Caregivers for At-Home and Preventive Care

PCPCC National Briefing

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has focused their 2015 advocacy efforts on a bill called the Caregiver Advise, Record and Enable (CARE) Act in efforts to improve patient care at home. The CARE Act outlines a process by which a family can choose a designated caregiver for a loved one, where a Hospital then has the responsibility to instruct and demonstrate how to perform different medical tasks and give proper care. Elaine Ryan, AARP’s Vice President of State Advocacy & Strategic Integration (SASI), will join PCPCC’s National Briefing on June 25th to inform us on the benefits and goals of this Act in relation to patient-centered primary care.
