Subject

Home Care Worker Registry

Purpose

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) will host a series of public statewide listening sessions on recent changes to Massachusetts General Law (M.G.L.) specifically, Chapter 139 of the Acts of 2017 requiring EOEA to create a Home Care Worker Registry (HCW Registry).  A home care worker as defined by Chapter 139 is a person employed by a home care worker agency to provide personal care, homemaker, companion or chore services under the state home care program. The purpose of these listening sessions will be to listen and gather input from home care workers, Home Care Agencies, consumers, interested stakeholders and the general public on the implementation of the HCW Registry, and the collection of information required to be entered into the Registry. 

What EOEA is required to collect as directed by M.G.L. Chapter 139

EOEA will collect:

·         Home Care Worker’s  full name

·         Gender

·         Home address

·         Mailing address

·         Full legal name of any home care worker agency employing the home care worker

·         Job Title

·         List of home care trainings or certifications completed by the home care worker

Note:  Only a worker’s full name, identification number (EOEA will assign a unique identification number), the name of any home care worker agency employing the home care worker, and a list of home care trainings or certifications completed by the worker will be made available to the public.
