Public Authority Registry/IHSS Providers

What is the Public Authority Registry?

The Public Authority helps match In-Home Supportive Service recipients with quality care providers by keeping a registry of people who need in-home care and those who are approved to provide care. We recruit, screen and provide orientation to care providers, and work to ensure that our registry is a safe and reliable source for those who need in-home assistance.

Who Can Use the Registry?

Anyone eligible for In-Home Supportive Services through Shasta County can use our registry to find a caregiver. By filling out a short form, we can match you with someone that meets your specific needs and preferences. Care providers may also use the registry to find work.
