Napa County new Caregiver Permit Program

"In the six months since Napa County began enforcing a new law designed to protect the elderly from criminals, nearly 200 caregivers have been issued permits after undergoing background checks, the county reports.

As of Jan. 5, Napa County has issued 69 cards to individual caregivers and another 125 cards to employees of caregiver service firms, said John Tuteur, Napa County’s assessor-recorder/county clerk. The first permit was issued July 22, he said.

Under the Napa County Caregiver Permit Program, anyone who receives free room and board or any other form of compensation in exchange for caregiving has to obtain a permit. The program is administered by the Area Agency on Aging serving Napa and Solano counties."
