In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) assists low-income older and disabled adults who need assistance to remain safely at home by providing payment to care providers. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home placement, but does not provide 24-hour care. IHSS Services:
• Medi-Cal-eligible Napa County residents who are 65 years of age or older, blind, or disabled. Disabled children may also qualify for IHSS. • Individuals under age 65 must have a permanent disability or a disability expected to last 12 months or more. • Individuals must not reside in a licensed care facility, such as a skilled nursing facility, assisted living facility, or a board and care home. • Individuals must be at-risk for out-of-home placement if services are not provided. If you are currently receiving IHSS and need a care provider, please contact the IHSS Public Authority at (707)259-8359. In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority (IHSS Provider Registry)
