Affinia Home Care has received the prestigious ‘Home Care Aide Organization Certification’ from the California Association for Health Services at Home (CAHSAH).
The certification was awarded in recognition of Affinia Home Care's efforts in providing the highest quality home care services. Affinia was certified under strict standards set by CAHSAH. These standards meet and exceed the requirements for licensure in the State of California under the "Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act" (AB1217).
CAHSAH is the leading advocate for high-quality in-home senior care in California. This Certification Program was developed to create quality standards for the home care industry. These standards seek to protect consumers. Without oversight and accountability, many seniors and family members pay the price as they place caregivers into their homes believing the person working in their home has been screened, trained and insured.
CAHSAH-certified agencies must submit proof that they do all of the following:
Have General and Professional Liability Insurance coverage
Have Workers’ Compensation Insurance coverage
Have Crime / Employee Dishonesty Bond coverage
Perform Pre-employment Background Clearance on all Home Care Aides
Perform Pre-employment Tuberculosis Screening of all Home Care Aides
Provide a signed Service Agreement including a specification of fees before service begins
Provide training to all Home Care Aides above and beyond what is required by the State of California
Affinia Home Care is proud to be recognized as an outstanding agency in California and is confident in our ability to provide quality home care services in the communities we serve.
