Interested in providing private duty services and just don’t know where to start? Regulations for certified agencies are very different than regulations for private duty. Most administrators of certified agencies are so used to the heavily restrictive federal regulations, they just can’t wrap their brains around what does and doesn’t apply to private duty. Join HCAF’s Director of Private Duty Services for a half-day workshop and learn all about the options you have with your current license, as well as the big differences in regulations.
Snacks and beverages will be provided by our host and sponsor, Flagler Home Care! Parking is available onsite in lot C or lot D. The Matanzas Room is located behind the cafeteria.
- Explain the pros and cons of providing private duty services with a certified license;
- Describe detailed information about every option currently available to providers;
- Learn step-by-step ways of opening a licensed-only agency;
- Discuss current Department of Labor and Wage & Hour Laws to be sure you don’t fall victim to a joint employer issue;
- And more!
