Home Care Organization Dishonesty Bonds
California Home Care Organization Dishonesty Bond Information

A home care organization dishonesty bond is a type of surety bond - more specifically, a fidelity bond - that protects the home owner/resident from acts of theft, larceny, or other unethical practices by the home care organization and its employees. Bond amounts vary and the Home Care Services Bureau should inform you as to the amount required.
