In-Home Supportive Services

What is In-Home Support?

HandsIn-home supportive services are available for people who are aged, blind or disabled, can not perform activities of daily living and cannot remain safely in their own homes without help. We work with local caregivers to ensure that these people are able to remain in familiar surroundings – safely, comfortably and with as much independence as possible.

Types of Support

Recipients may receive assistance with daily tasks, such as:

  • Bathing  
  • Dressing
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Grooming
  • Feeding

Eligibility

To find out if you are eligible for services, stop by our office, or call 530-225-5507 for an appointment. To be eligible, an applicant must:

  • Be a California resident and reside in his/her own home
  • Be age 65 and over, blind or disabled
  • Be receiving Medi-Cal benefits
  • Have low income as set by SSI/SSP standards (if a person's income exceeds SSI/SSP standards, there may be a share of cost)

Anyone who recognizes that a person is in need of in-home assistance may refer someone to our program. A social worker will conduct an assessment to determine the applicant’s need based on medical condition, living arrangement and resources available.

Finding a Caregiver

If an applicant is eligible for services, we can assist you with locating a caregiver through our registry of caregiver providers. A friend or relative may also serve as your caregiver. Once you have selected a caregiver, you will act as your caregiver's employer by supervising tasks and signing time sheets. We will arrange for your caregiver's payment.

Watch these educational videos to learn more about interviewing, hiring and supervising a caregiver.
