Proposed legislation would dramatically limit access to homecare

California is  facing two legislative issues that, if passed, stand to force dramatic changes to the way private-pay homecare services are delivered to the elderly and disabled. Under the guise of “consumer safety” and “employee protection,” special interests have put forth  proposals that will create new expensive government bureaucracies and impose exorbitant fees on providers and homecare clients—including some of our society’s most vulnerable citizens.

We and the Homecare industry majority favor some form of government oversight to ensure quality care and access for all. The current legislative proposals, AB 241 & AB 1217, overreach and  jeopardize access to care and threaten the jobs of thousands of caregivers.  At Hired Hands Homecare, we feel it important to reach out and inform as many people as possible of the negative  impacts if these proposals pass. Join our push for a better solution by following the link to

PROTECT ACCESS TO HOMECARE (P.A.T.H.) is a coalition of private providers, employees, clients, and advocates united in a fight against special interests who have introduced legislation to alter the care options available to California’s most vulnerable citizens. Specifically, we have come together to fight AB 241 and AB 1217 – both of which are currently making their way through the California State Legislature.
