New York State Home Care Registry
The Home Care Registry provides limited information about home care workers who have successfully completed a state approved training program in New York State. Information contained in the registry may be entered and updated by third parties. Consequently, the Department of Health does not guarantee the accuracy of third-party information provided. Further, the Department of Health does not endorse any individual listed on the Registry. Please refer to the frequently asked questions to obtain a better understanding of the information contained in this registry. In particular, individuals listed on the registry may have had their certification lapse, or may be denied employment approval due to a background check, or the information in the Registry may be outdated. Most of the information posted on this Registry is voluntarily reported by the workers themselves, by home care service agencies, or by prosecutorial agencies which choose to provide information. It is the responsibility of those accessing this Registry to verify the credentials, suitability and competency of any individual listed in the registry.
Information on home care workers is being added to the registry over time and may not be complete at the time of your search. The Department encourages consumers to make additional reference checks on all individuals they are considering for employment as this database is limited in the information it can provide. This is particularly important with respect to individuals whose employment status is anything other than "YES".
Home Health Workers and Personal Care Workers listed on the Home Care Registry may be found by searching the registry by name or by the worker's DOH assigned Home Care Registry Number. First enter the appropriate search information, then click on the corresponding Search button. At least two characters of last name are required to search by name.
