This standard is intended to support all workers providing care-in-place and their employers by providing competency requirements and guidance for occupations and roles.
Care-in-place refers to all services (e.g., transportation, indoor domestic tasks, home maintenance, health care, personal care) performed in and around persons’ personal homes and all community residential care settings to support living long, safe, healthy, independent lives at home during all life stages.
This standard will provide guidance and/or requirements for common competencies for workers to provide care-in-place services (e.g., working alone, patient privacy, use of medical devices and non-medical health and wellness technologies, cultural sensitivity, chronic disease management, palliative care, dementia care, early mental health symptom identification). The standard will provide nationally consistent and comprehensive guidance on education and training to support care-in-place service provision.
This standard will have a particular focus on technology to support care-in-place. The lack of frontline comfort and training on new technologies is one of the major roadblocks for technology adoption for care-in-place, an enormous missed opportunity for better and more efficient care, improved equity, and cost-effectiveness.
While this standard will build on the learnings from the COVID-19 pandemic, it will also be future looking to help establish effective and sustainable long-term solutions for care-in-place services.
