Home Caregiver ID Badges
The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners has enacted the Home Caregiver Ordinance requiring ID Badges and Level 2 background checks of Home Caregivers. The ordinance will be enforced primarily by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office and Consumer Affairs Compliance Officers. ID Badges will be issued, and records concerning the badges will be maintained by the Palm Beach County Division of Consumer Affairs.
Completed Home Caregiver Applications will be processed BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Due to overwhelming demand, Consumer Affairs DOES NOT accept walk-in applications.
Persons wishing to apply may request an appointment here.
The hours available for appointment are between 8:00AM - 3:00PM.
IF YOU ARE A FLORIDA CURRENTLY LICENSED CNA, YOU ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS ORDINANCE AND ARE NOT REQUIRED TO OBTAIN A PALM BEACH COUNTY CAREGIVER ID BADGE.
If you are an officer of a Health Care/ Nursing Agency please use our Home Caregiver Company Approved Signature Form advising our office of the staff names and titles of those who are allowed to sign the affidavits on behalf of the agency. The affidavit form is now online here and may be submitted by the applicant with the completed Caregiver Application and required picture ID (US Passport, Florida Driver License or Florida ID).
