NY - Home Care Demonstrations (2008)
Bill would establish home care demonstration programs that would provide eligible individuals with access to high quality, appropriate nursing services. The programs are intended to provide care receivers and family caregivers more choice and control over who is providing care and to increase and retain the workforce of nurses willing to provide such care. Licensed home care agencies who participate in the demonstrations must provide families with ongoing education and assistance as is necessary regarding the recruitment, hiring, scheduling and managing of the nurses and describe the agency's quality assurance mechanisms.
