The California Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act now provides the guidelines for senior caregivers in the state of California. This new mandate, created by the California Assembly Bill 1217, was passed by the state legislature and signed into law by Governor Brown after a long process that included satisfying both the public Medicaid care requirements and private-duty home care.
This California caregiver training law mandates several requirements for senior care companies to be licensed and to both train and conduct background checks on caregivers who now must be added to the state’s caregiver registry.
