In-Home Aides: Partners In Quality Care 
August 2022


    Home care agencies are subject to federal, state, and local laws, rules, and

    regulations. The various rules and regulations help protect the public by

    providing minimum standards for quality and safety of home care services. The

    rules also address standards for safety and training of home care workers.

    Agencies are subject to surveys and inspections by state and federal regulatory

    and payer source bodies. Agencies can receive citations and deficiencies and

    an agency’s home care license can be revoked for certain levels of deficiencies.

    The health, safety and welfare of clients receiving services from a home care

    agency is of utmost importance in operating a home care agency along with staff

    training, safety, and health screenings. Surveyors visit home care agencies to

    make sure the agency is following state and federal regulations.
