On July 9, Missouri became the 40th state to pass the Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable Act. Signed by Gov. Mike Parson (R), the law will support unpaid family caregivers by requiring hospitals to record their names when their loved ones are admitted; notify caregivers when their loved ones are moved or discharged; and instruct caregivers on the medical tasks they will need to perform at home.

The Kansas Lay Caregiver Act took effect on July 1, 2018, giving caregivers support as their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home.
