The new rules are not agreed on no contract or any other than by word of mouth. I have documentation of my services and have pictures and notes of my care. I'm a licensed caretaker from Pa and was certified by Visiting Angels a reputable company I worked for a year and two other agencies I had to train for and get a background check. I also have a CPR and other certificates in working with different disabilities.

You have a few options. Let me outline them. You can pursue a complaint in civil court. You may sue for losses suffered plus costs and interest. You can also file a complaint with the attorney general office. You can threaten these options before pursuing and use for leverage. local counsel can also get involved!
