    Personal Care Home Licensing Regulations

    Pennsylvania's Personal Care Home Regulations are clearly defined in 55 PA Code Chapter 2600

    Please Note: Personal Care Home Regulations (55 Pa.Code Ch. 2600) became effective on October 24, 2005. On May 24, 2006, Commonwealth Court ruled in favor of the department on all aspects of a lawsuit challenging these resulations and ordered that all the personal care home regulations are now in full force and effect. Therefore, all the regulations now apply in their entirety and personal care homes are responsible to comply with all the regulations. In March of 2007 the Pennsylvania State Supreme court again ruled in favor of the department upholding 55 PA Code Ch. 2600.  The decision was issued 3/26/07.
