About Us


The OHCC supports homecare workers, personal support workers, personal care attendants and consumers/employers by:

Defining qualifications of homecare and personal support workers
Providing a statewide Registry of homecare and personal support workers and personal care attendants
Providing training opportunities for consumers and workers
Serving as the "employer of record" for collective bargaining for homecare and personal support workers who receive service payments that are from public funds

In 2000, the citizens of Oregon voted to amend the State Constitution to create the Oregon Home Care Commission.  The Commission is responsible for ensuring the quality of home care services that are funded by the Department of Human Services for older adults and people with disabilities. The Commission is made up of nine commissioners appointed by the Governor and four who represent the Department of Human Services, the Governor’s Commission on Senior Services, the Oregon Disabilities Commission, and the Oregon Association of Area Agencies on Aging and Disabilities.

The Oregon Home Care Commission is committed to ensuring the following for older adults and people with disabilities:

  • Quality of in-home services and workers
  • Choice of best worker and services to fit each person’s needs
  • Independence to thrive at home and in the community

The Commission supports consumers (employers) and workers by:

  • Offering a Registry available online 24/7 that matches employers with qualified homecare and personal support workers;
  • Offering free, statewide training classes for homecare and personal support workers;
  • Offering several certification programs for homecare and personal support workers;
  • Paying for CPR and First Aid certification;
  • Offering free trainings to employers who hire homecare and personal support workers to help them become successful employers; and
  • Providing workers’ compensation coverage for homecare and personal support workers
