The Home Care Association of America Washington State Chapter was formed in 2005 to advance the field of home care in Washington State. We support member home care agencies in Washington to comply with Department of Health regulations and advocate on behalf of businesses, caregivers, and clients.
Members are home care or home health agencies licensed by the state of Washington that employ caregivers (home care aides) who perform companion care, personal care, and homemaker services for seniors and people with disabilities in their own homes.
