    Connecticut’s Growing Demand for Qualified Caregivers

    Did you know?

    The 65 and older population is expected to grow by 56 percent in Connecticut between 2010 and 2040. To uphold safety standards and ensure the elderly receive reliable care, Connecticut enforces stringent regulations for agencies and caregivers. Here’s a brief overview to guide you through navigating these regulations effectively:


    Training programs must be approved by the Commissioner before an agency is authorized to train Aides.

    Competency Evaluation

    A comprehensive evaluation program is established to assess aides’ proficiency in various essential tasks.


    A registered nurse with at least two years of nursing experience, one of which must be in home health care, conducts the competency evaluation.


    Aides deemed unsatisfactory in any task require additional training and evaluation before performing that task independently.
