The 2013-15 Homecare and Personal Support Worker Collective Bargaining Agreement provides for a new level of worker and compensation. Enhanced and Exceptional workers provide services to consumers with certain assessed medical and/or behavioral needs, and have successfully completed additional training.
The Oregon Home Care Commission is currently developing these courses, as well as an application process. A Readiness Assessment will be required as part of the application.
Watch future newsletters and the Home Care Commission website in the fall for information about how to apply.
