The Wisconsin Caregiver Program Manual provides detailed information about the Caregiver Law as it relates to Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) regulated entities.

While the Wisconsin Caregiver Law applies to all entities regulated by the Department of Health Services (DHS), this manual focuses on entities regulated by DQA and is designed to provide clear policy and procedure direction for these entities.
