What is a licensed home care agency?

In New York State, a home care agency such as Home-Health Care Partners is licensed when it meets specific standards and regulations for providing home care. Licensed home care agencies are permitted to manage and provide home-based medical care under the direction of registered nursing staff. Licensed agencies typically provide the services that are not available through your public health or certified home care agencies, and can deliver care when there is an identified need.

Licensure assures a level of skill, expertise, and safety that is not found with unregulated individuals or entities.
