CA Dept of Social Services Livescan & Caregiver Background Check

The DOJ only accepts electronically transmitted fingerprint images and related information to process requests for criminal record checks.

In response to COVID-19 related closures, CDSS is providing a list of recently active Live Scan providers. This list will be periodically updated as additional information is received from the Department of Justice. However, applicants are encouraged to contact the Live Scan providers in advance to verify their current operating hours, fees, etc.

It is very important for you to use only the LiveScan form provided to you by the potential employer, licensee or provider. These forms contain information that is unique to each agency and this information must be on the form before arriving to have fingerprints taken.

CA Department of Social Services Home Care Aide Registry

The new Guardian system has replaced the following functions: Online Registration, Online Renewal, and Online Opt-In/Out Preferences.

Registration: A Home Care Aide applicant can now submit and pay for an online application to be listed on the Home Care Aide Registry via the new Guardian Application Portal. An account will need to be created to submit and update your Home Care Aide details.

Renewal: Home Care Aide registration is valid for a two (2) year period. On or before expiration of registration, a registered Home Care Aide can request renewal of their registration and pay renewal fees online via the new Guardian Application Portal. If an account has not already been created in Guardian, one will need to be created in order to submit a renewal application and fee online.

Opt-In/Out: A Home Care Aide may change their opt-preference of having their name and telephone number(s) shared with labor organizations via their account settings in the new Guardian Portal. There will no longer be a need for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) in order to update these preferences; however, an account will need to be created in Guardian in order to update opt-preferences online.
