    Meeting New Jersey’s Growing CHHA Need

    Did you know?

    New Jersey’s aging population is projected to surge in the coming years, creating a high demand for skilled caregivers. To meet this demand and ensure the well-being of seniors, the state enforces specific regulations for Certified Homemaker-Home Health Aides (CHHAs).


    Under Medicaid programs, certified homemaker-home health aides are mandated to provide personal care services. Certification involves completing training covering 15 detailed topics.

    Training Supervision

    Registered nurses with at least two years of experience, including one year in home care, must conduct the training.


    Every CHHA training program shall include a competency evaluation examination that tests a student’s ability to complete the functions of a CHHA.

    Exempted Workers

    Personal care aides under Medicaid or private-pay arrangements are not subject to state training regulations. Private-pay home care agency workers, as the state does not license them, are also exempt from statutory training requirements.
