California Home Care Services

Unlike many other states, California does not require a license for non-medical or custodial care services. As a result, there are no barriers to entry, no consumer protection laws, no minimum standards, and no official state oversight. Consumers and their families must adopt a buyer beware approach, do their homework and hire caregivers that are bonded and insured. Look for companies who do background checks on their employees. California Medicare-certified home health care programs are surveyed annually against the Medicare Conditions of Participation.

California Home Health Care Resources

For additional information about various options, many California home health care agencies have joined together for a cooperative partnership. The California Association of Health Care Services at Home can help refer you to one of their member agencies as needed. They also offer a certification process for their member agencies, which some people may find reassuring due to the lack of state oversight.
