The Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act went into effect Jan. 1. It requires all companies that provide non-medical care to seniors in their homes to be licensed by the state's Department of Social Services by July 1. But the worker requirements have caused a shortage of home care aides in the area because it takes the state up to three weeks to process the applications or some can't pass the background checks.
