could you explain this further? A person providing services may not transfer or discharge an elderly…?

A person providing services may not transfer or discharge an elderly individual unless:

1. the elderly individual’s health is improved sufficiently so that services are no longer needed;

2. the person providing services ceases to operate or to participate in the program that reimburses the person providing services for the elderly individual’s treatment or care; or

Please help me explain number 1 and number 2!

This sounds as if you are working for a home care provider.

The first statement means that you may not leave the elderly person for whom you are a caregiver unless he or she no longer needs you.

The second statement means that, unless you quit the service you are working for, you may not just walk off from the person for whom you are the caregiver.

I think this language is meant to protect your home care company and inform you of your responsibility to stay with the elderly person you are assigned to unless you have told the company that you are quitting altogether or that the elderly person is now able to take care of herself.

If you are providing services (I assume healthcare) to an elderly person, you can’t stop and make then leave unless 1) they are better and don’t need the healtcare anymore or 2) you stop accepting payment from the elderly person’s insurance agency or Medicaid.
