Did you know 1 in 5 Americans is a family caregiver? Nearly half perform nursing home care tasks with little guidance. How can we engage and support caregivers with the knowledge they need to provide optimal care beyond the hospital or doctor’s office? 

Together, AARP and GetWellNetwork are making it easier for hospitals to comply with the CARE Act while also meeting family caregivers where they are with interactive tools and resources that support their own journey.  

Join Dr. Susan Reinhard, Senior Vice President and Director at AARP Public Policy Institute, Dr. Karen Drenkard, Chief Clinical Officer and Chief Nursing Officer of GetWellNetwork and Stephanie Reid, Vice President of Patient Care Services at Carroll Hospital to discuss the first digital caregiver instructional resources made accessible in the hospital setting and how they help meet CARE Act mandates (provisions one and three).

In this webinar you will discover:

  • A collaboration with AARP aimed to meet the gap in care delivery by ensuring caregivers have appropriate education

  • Carroll Hospital’s use of technology to comply with CARE Act requirements

  • GetWellNetwork’s Inpatient solution offering AARP’s instructional home care video library as well as automated documentation of designated caregiver information in the hospital record
