The Oregon Home Care Commission consists of nine commissioners appointed by the Governor for up to three (three-year) terms. Five are consumers of homecare services. The other four 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 Commission has four major responsibilities:
To define the qualifications of homecare and personal support workers;
To create a statewide registry of homecare and personal support workers;
To provide training opportunities for homecare and personal support workers and consumers; and
To serve as the "employer of record" for purposes of collective bargaining for homecare and personal support workers who receive service payments that are from public funds.
