In-Home Care Providers
On May 8, 2011, the Governor signed into law the In-Home Care Providers Act. The Act defines what an in-home care provider is, and provides certain requirements for licensure. It also directs the Department to promulgate regulations for the licensure of in-home care providers. The requirements for licensure become effective when the General Assembly approves the regulation. A copy of the Act is provided on this website. We are currently in the process of promulgating the regulation.
