The Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) is pleased to announce a partnership with the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF) and the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). The partnership is embarking on an important new consumer initiative for licensed elder care homes. The goal of the initiative is to provide consumers with improved information for the evaluation and selection of care homes in the Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly (RCFE) licensing category. To encourage communications with all interested groups, we will publish the project schedule, status, background and working papers on myccl. See the following links for more details.
