Home Care Regulatory Framework Planning Group

MDH is responsible for assuring that home care providers meet standards in providing services to their clients. The home care industry is growing rapidly. With the first wave of boomers retiring in 2010 and the increased expectations that individuals as they age want to receive care in their own home or homelike setting it is expected that this service area will continue to expand in the coming years. MDH is preparing to meet this need by reviewing its regulatory framework.

To provide input on this process MDH has assembled a work group of stakeholders including advocates, consumers, providers and regulators. This work group began meeting in the fall of 2007.

This Web site was created for the Home Care Regulatory Framework Planning Group members and interested others to have easier access to the information that has been distributed or discussed at meetings.
