Napa County To Enforce New In-Home Care Requirements
On July 1, Napa County will start enforcing a law -- the first of its kind in California -- that requires in-home caregivers to undergo criminal background checks and pay for an annual permit. Registered nurses and other licensed health care workers will be exempt from the requirements. Fees from the background checks will go to the Area Agency on Aging Serving Napa and Solano.
