DES MOINES — AARP Iowa held the first of what will be several education sessions Wednesday on a new law for family caregivers that goes into effect Monday.The group’s advocacy director Anthony Carroll says the CARE Act will make an impact across the state. “Family caregivers represent the majority of long-term services and support. With over 317-thousand family caregivers who provide care to loved ones in unpaid fashion every day,” Carroll says.The law requires hospitals to give patients the opportunity to name a caregiver at the start of the process. “If you’re going into a hospital with a loved one as a family caregiver — you perhaps don’t even identify yourself yet as a family caregiver,” Carroll says. “So, having the hospital ask a patient and loved one ‘do you have a family caregiver that you are going home to, would you like to record them and put them into your medical record’?”There is also followup to the initial notation of a caregiver. “And if you do chose to designate a caregiver — that caregiver is notified before the patient is sent home. And then, last but not least, there’s an opportunity have a discussion about the caregiver’s abilities, limitations, and an opportunity to receive instructions on any medical care needed before that patient is sent home — rather than you get home and realize, what do I need to do, how do I need to do this,” according to Carroll.He says the process is designed to take the surprises out of the situation for the caregiver. “Thinking from the git-go what you might need to do. Being prepared to ask questions, and then hopefully alleviating the stress that comes with that situation, being thrust in that role perhaps unanticipated after the fact,” Carroll says. “So, that’s really the idea, elevating family caregivers, helping them think about it upon admission.”Carroll says they also understand the issues facing healthcare providers and this should help them better server patients.“The provider themselves actually has a better understanding of what exactly care reality or support reality is this patient returning home to,” he says.Carroll says AARP has information available to help you understand the new law. “There’s free downloadable cards available — you don’t have to be an AARP member — there’s no cost, at www.AARP/IA. Again, that’s an opportunity for people to understand what the new law is. You can detach a wallet card and put it in your pocket,” Carroll says. He says they have been working with the area agencies on aging and other groups to get the information out about the new law.

LE MARS — Iowa Congressman Steve King says he expects to be placed back on several legislative committees in the near future.King, a Republican from Kiron, was removed from all committee assignments in January following a New York Times article where he addressed white supremacy. Speaking in Le Mars on Monday, King said he’s been talking with House leaders about restoring his status.“There is that possibility,” King says. “I’ve had some discussion with leadership as recently as just the end of last week. I expect to go back next week and pick up that discussion. I’ve let them know that I’m going to start to turn this up now. I’ve been too nice, too long.”During the Times interview, King said he didn’t understand how the phrases white supremacy, white nationalism and western civilization had developed negative connotations. King says he was misquoted. He says he deserves to have his assignments restored as there’s no precedent for how he’s being treated.“We asked the Congressional Research Services to go back through the history of the United States Congress and identify each member of Congress that had been removed from all of their committees, had served with no committees,” King says. “Since antiquity, as far back as they could go in the records, there have been four.”King is the fourth — and he says two previous representatives were convicted of serious crimes while the third is still facing trial. King points out, he’s never been charged with anything. “What have I been accused of? I’m accused of a misquote, by the way, for asking a politically incorrect, rhetorical question. That’s the level of it. This is something that cannot be allowed to stand,” King says. “If it stands, there will be speech sanctions against any member of Congress that speaks out, no matter how objectively true they are.”King says if he remains stripped of his committee assignments, then our constitutional rights will be jeopardized. “It supresses the freedom of speech, thought and expression for the entire nation,” King says. “People should think that if you can’t speak freely, neither can you even think freely because what good are those thoughts if you can’t express them and how do you measure them against someone else? Another way to put this is, you’ve gotta’ put people together, they’ve got to exchange ideas and have open conversation. Let their imaginations soar.”The 4th District Republican says he will continue to “put the heat on the leadership.”
Ambrose also opined that the tournament will give him and head coach Thomas Dennerby the chance to look at a large pool of players from the country, as they shape the U-17 women’s team for the World Cup next year.”It really is a unique tournament, where we will get to see so many players from across the country showcase their talent. The head coach is also here assessing all the players, and I think it could go a long way in helping us shape the team for the World Cup,” he said.Legend Bembem Devi, who is also known as the Durga of Indian football, will also be taking charge of one of the teams in the tournament. She believes that with a year to go for the World Cup, this is the right time to host this tournament, as it would give the talented players a platform.”We have just about a year to go, and the Hero U-17 Women’s Championship could help bring into focus a number of talented girls. This could only help the India U-17 team that would play in the World Cup, as it could help the coach have a bigger pool of players to pick from, and competition for places is always a great motivator for the players to improve themselves,” said Bembem.She further went on to state that women’s football in India has grown over the last few years, and more concentration on youth tournaments will only help in the long run.”Of course, such initiatives are great for the girls who want to play football at the top level when they grow up. Over the last few years, women’s football has improved by leaps and bounds. We now have a professional league that has already supplied the national team with so many players,” she said.”On top of that we now have a tournament where the younger girls can showcase their talent. It really helps to spot the talented players and groom them for the future.” “It’s a huge thing that these girls will get to play in a tournament like this. The pressure will be there because it will be broadcasted across the country. They need to know that when they represent the country, the nation will also rally in their support,” said Ambrose.
