THE CAREGIVERS ACT NOW LAW IN GEORGIA.

More than a million Georgia residents are caring for an older parent or loved one, helping them to live independently at home. These family caregivers have a huge responsibility, and there is now new support in place that will make life a little bit easier for them.

A new law, the CAREGIVERS Act, went into effect July 1, 2022 and supports family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home. 

The law requires hospitals to:

  • Provide your loved one the opportunity to designate a family caregiver
  • Inform you when your loved one is to be discharged to another facility or back home
  • Give you instructions of the medical or nursing tasks you will need to perform at home
