Home Care Bill of Rights
The Minnesota Home Care Bill of Rights (BOR) is designed to protect the recipients of home care and home management services.
Minnesota laws require that licensed home care, registered home management and license-exempt care providers give a written copy of the BOR to each recipient of service or his/her designee. This information must be provided before a client receives services.
Various versions of the Minnesota Home Care Bill of Rights can be found on the internet. MDH encourages home care providers and consumers/recipients of home care services and their families to visit the MDH website for the most current version.
