Private Care Arrangements?
This is to make you aware from 1st January 2019, it is now a legal requirement that anyone providing ‘care’ to a person in their own home under a private arrangement must register with the Jersey Care Commission.
An application to register as a home care provider must be made to the Commission by 30 June 2019. Anyone who has not applied to register by the end of June and who continues to provide home care after this date will be committing an offence for which they may be prosecuted and if convicted liable to imprisonment for a term of up to 12 months and to a fine.
The registration application form and information about how to register can found on http://www.jod.je/kb5/jersey/directory/service.page?id=jPsmtvACvyE&adultchannel=0
