Home Care Aide (HCA) Training and Certification
Individual caregiver providers not working for any state or private licensed agency, in other words being paid directly by the client or client family, are exempt from the requirement to be certified, however, many long term care insurance policies require a licensed or certified provider. Also having HCA certification conveys a level of competency to potential clients.
To encourage island residents to become trained and certified caregivers, Lahari often sponsors Orcas Island residents to complete the Washington State mandated and DSHS approved Home Care Aide Training.
