This program allows home care aide organizations or components of home care organizations which provide home care aide services to submit evidence that they meet CAHSAH's Certification Standards for Home Care Aide Organizations. After verifying that the evidence submitted is complete, CAHSAH will issue the organization a certificate indicating that they have met CAHSAH's Certification Standards.
Benefits of Certification
-Shows referral sources and clients that your caregivers are employees and that you carry workers' compensation, liability insurance, and an employee dishonesty bond.
-Demonstrates that caregivers have been background checked and screened for tuberculosis.
-Provides a competitive edge in the marketplace, and improves the ability to secure new business.
-Enhances staff recruitment and development - Certification can attract qualified personnel who prefer to serve in an organization which meets CAHSAH's Certification Standards.
The CAHSAH Home Care Aide Organization Certification Logo is available when you agree to the terms of the License Agreement.

This Certification Program was developed as an alternative to licensure of home care organizations as proposed by AB853 (Jones). We feel a Certification Program, administered by CAHSAH, may achieve many of the same objectives we sought to accomplish in AB853 at far less cost.
Please note that the Certification Program is a voluntary program. CAHSAH members can decide whether or not to become certified.
Non-CAHSAH members will be able to become certified if they meet the standards and pay a fee. For further details contact the Membership Department at (916) 641-5795.
CAHSAH hopes that home care aide organizations or home care organization components of larger home care organizations will apply for certification.
If you have questions, please contact Michele Lander at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 641-5795, ext. 129.
