Clara, San Francisco, Alameda and Contra Costa.
is compliant with the recently enacted changes to the Home Care Industry
and glad to answer your questions about it. In January 2016, California
established the Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act. http://ccld.ca.gov/PG3654.htm
This law requires Home Care Organizations to be licensed and it created
a public online registry for Home Care Aides who have been background
checked. This law is intended to promote consumer protection for elderly
and disabled individuals who hire private aides to come into their homes
and provide assistance with activities of daily living.
Currently, implementation of this law is underway in the newly formed
Home Care Services Bureau, which oversees the licensing and oversight of
the Home Care Organizations, the application process for the Home Care
Aides and the maintenance of the Registry. The Caregiver Background
Check bureau oversees the civil and criminal background checks.
Home care agencies that are unprepared will face denial of
certifications of their home care businesses and /or denial of
certification for their individual home care staff.
By now, at a minimum, each existing Home Care agency in California
-Submitted their agency qualifications overview to
CA’s Department of Social Services (CDSS) for approval;
all their individual home care provider background to CDSS for approval;
CDSS of their home care agency’s locations, staff, vetting process and
ongoing training needs.

Valerio has seven years of nursing and home care experience. They and
their staff are also a resource for senior organizations throughout the
Bay Area. Both have a passion for mentoring staff and supporting clients
and families in the home care industry.
One of the many nuances of providing excellent home care is to have a
cultural sensitivity and awareness. The San Francisco/Bay Area is a
“melting pot” of cultures and people. Accordingly, CI’s home care staff
are well versed in: being respectful as to people’s culture, race,
religion, and views. This cultural sensitivity allows Care Indeed home
care staff to provide comfortable quality care for patients. Comfort
level and safety for both clients and caregivers are paramount.
Accordingly, we ensure that there is a great match between our client
and the caregiver. If a family is facing the issue of signing up for
hospice care, Care Indeed can also be a sounding board and ensure that
the patient and family’s needs are all sensitively and compassionately
