Aging and Adult Services: Support: In-Home Supportive Services: Public Authority

The Public Authority assists In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) consumers in need of a homecare worker, by maintaining a list of qualified individuals who are interested in working as an independent provider. Registry workers who have passed background checks are referred to IHSS consumers based on their needs. A registry specialist is available to provide assistance to consumers who require additional help in hiring a provider or in establishing a positive relationship with their worker. The Public Authority also provides personnel services for IHSS providers and offers training to providers and consumers. The Public Authority is a separate agency from the County and is governed by the Board of Supervisors with input from an advisory committee.
