Home Care

If you would like to conduct your own search, here are some resources to help you.

Department of Social and Health Services
The Department of Social Health Services provides a complete list of providers with their license status and links to enforcement letters as well as a document called “Disclosure of Services” outlining some specific information about what type of care they provide and their Medicaid policy.

Department of Health
On the Department of Health’s website, you can look up a home care agency to see if they are in “active” status. Additionally, you can look up an individual nurse or caregiver to see if their license is active and if they have any enforcement actions on record. For home care agencies look under the “Health Facility” link and for individuals look under “Healthcare Provider.”

Retirement Connection
