Directory Basics Video


Does the Directory screen PCAs for employment?

NO, the Directory does not screen online applicants or conduct background checks. It is the responsibility of the consumer/employer to conduct CORI, SORI checks, as well as check the references of all potential employees. The Council strongly encourages all PCA consumers to use this valuable resource. The CORI program is FREE for elders 60+ and people with disabilities. You may download a form, called "On Behalf of Home Health Aide" online at: https://www.mass.gov/files/2017-07/home-health-aide-fillable.pdf
