IHSS Public Authority

The County of Sacramento Board of Supervisors established the In-Home Supportive Services Public Authority (IHSSPA) as part of a continuum to help elderly and/or disabled adults and disabled children ("consumers") remain in their own homes with the support of in-home care (from "caregivers"). The Public Authority negotiates wages and benefits for IHSS caregivers, provides registry services to assist IHSS consumers in finding caregivers, and provides access to training for IHSS consumers and caregivers.

Note: The IHSS consumer is responsible for hiring, firing, and supervising a caregiver. The consumer should interview potential caregivers, negotiate a work schedule, identify the work to be done, and sign timesheets.
