    Ensuring Quality Care in Oregon

    Did you know?

    1 in 5 Americans is projected to be 65+ by 2030, creating a nationwide caregiving crisis. Oregon, facing the same challenge, implements strict regulations. These measures aim to meet the increasing demand for comprehensive, specialized care, especially in underserved areas.

    Thus, it becomes necessary for agencies and caregivers to adapt to these regulations to maintain compliance and competence.

    Here’s a quick breakdown to help you on your journey:

    Certification and Licensing

    Oregon mandates all home care agencies to obtain licensure. Agency-employed caregivers are required to undergo training on 11 broad topics before assisting consumers.

    Competency Evaluation

    Caregivers must complete training and undergo competency evaluation by the administrator or designee before independently serving clients.


    Caregivers with a current Oregon health-care license or certificate are exempt from in-home caregiver training. Additionally, training regulations do not apply to personal care aides directly employed by consumers under Medicaid programs or private-pay arrangements.
