IHSS Task Force News

The IHSS Task Force is a place for up-to-date conversations about how IHSS and home care in San Francisco is changing, and what needs to be done to ensure that the needs of seniors and people with disabilities are met. The group brings together leaders of government agencies and non-profit organizations involved in IHSS, along with consumers and providers, recognizing the need to hear the voices of those directly affected by the program.

Sign up for Support at Home!

Support at Home has officially launched! Support at Home is a voucher program to help seniors and people with disabilities pay for home care so they can live safely in their homes. This is the program that SDA members fought hard to create and secure funding for — and it is now a reality!

If your income or savings is just barely too high for Medi-Cal and IHSS, but you can’t afford the out-of-pocket costs, this program is for you. To be eligible, you must be 18 or older, need assistance with 2 or more Activities of Daily Living, have less than $40,000 in assets (excluding a home and car) and less than $80,000 in income (for a single person). Please help spread the word!

To sign up, call Institute on Aging / IOA Connect at (415) 750-4111. Click here for more information.
