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.
