  (4)  Recognition on an annual basis by the governor for those families participating in the shared care program and community project groups participating in the shared care program;

  (6)  To promote community involvement by:

  (a)  Providing local communities information about the shared care program and to encourage the establishment of support groups where none are available and to support existing support groups, and other programs for shared care members and providers to share ideas, information and resources on caring for an elderly person; and

  (b)  Encouraging local home care, adult day care or other long-term care providers, who have regularly scheduled training sessions for paid caregivers, to voluntarily invite shared care members to participate in education and training sessions at no cost to the registered caregivers.  Such providers shall not be held liable in any civil or criminal action related to or arising out of the participation or training of shared care members in such sessions.

  (2)  Maintain a registry of names and addresses of shared care members and shared care providers;

  (3)  Compile a list, updated annually, of public and private resources, services and programs which may be available to assist and support the registered caregiver with caring for the elderly.  Such list shall be given to shared care members along with information on shared care providers in their community.  Private organizations and providers shall be responsible for providing information to the division of aging for inclusion on the list.  The department shall establish reporting procedures for private organizations and publicly disseminate the division's guidelines statewide;

  (4)  Compile and distribute to shared care members information about the services and benefits of the shared care program and a bibliography of resources and materials with information helpful to such members.  The bibliography will give members an overview of available information and is not required to be comprehensive;
