NPDA Defines Three Levels of Caregivers for Private Duty Home Care

The National Private Duty Association, the largest free-standing national association representing non-medical home care companies has just published a white paper defining three levels of caregivers in Private Duty Home Care.

Level I - Companions and Homemakers
Level II - Personal Care Attendants
Level III - Home Health Aides and Certified Nursing Assistants

The white paper defines the Activities, Training Guidelines, and Supervision for each level of caregiver.

For copy of this white paper, visit the National Private Duty Association web site at


  1. I am unable to find the whitepapers for the 3 levels of caregivers at the website you gave. Can you help me, please?
    Thank you.
