House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

From: Representative Karen Boback
To: All House members
Subject: Respite Care for Care Receivers
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that provides up to three hours of respite care services for care receivers. There is a significant need for services to assist families and caregivers providing at home care to functionally dependent older adults.
This legislation will allow caregivers to take their loved one to an adult day center for up to three hours a week. This care and service will benefit not only our care receivers, but offer also their caregivers. With one of the oldest populations in the country, it is imperative that we review our current laws and modernize the way we care for one of our most cherished populations.
I welcome you in joining as a cosponsor of this important legislation.

Introduced as HB2679
