Senator Winfield Visits West Haven Seniors to Discuss CARE Act

Senator Gary Winfield visited the West Haven Senior Center to speak with senior citizens about the importance of the CARE Act signed into law by Governor Malloy early this summer. The CARE Act requires hospitals to: 1) provide each patient with the opportunity to designate a caregiver upon the patient’s admission to the hospital; 2) notify the designated caregiver if the patient is to be discharged to another facility or back to his or her home; and 3) provide the caregiver with instructions on how to perform medication management, wound care, injections or other medical tasks for the patient when the patient returns home.
