The Home Care Services Bureau conducts Care Services Consumer Protection Act Stakeholder’s Meetings pursuant to California’s AB 1217, the Home Care Licensure Act. Those who are interested in the subject are encouraged to submit their questions to: HCSB@dss.ca.gov AND to our Policy Director, Braden Oparowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Department has announced that they expect to release the licensing fees and aide registration fees sometime in July. Information was also presented on the following topics: fingerprint transfer process, home care aide training requirements, written directives verses regulations, licensing inspections, personnel and administrative file requirements, abuse reporting requirements, reporting organizational changes and TB clearance.
