IHSS (In Home Supportive Services) Overview and Protective Supervision

Tue, Apr 17, 2018: 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

This workshop is funded in part by California Children's Services.

Eligibility for IHSS is only available to those with Medi-Cal, including through the Medicaid Waiver available from Regional Centers called Institutional Deeming. Your child may be living at home with you or in their own home to be eligible for this service. You might even be paid as the provider of their services. They may not be living in a group home. If you are considering Supported Living, this service must be tapped if eligible before hours are awarded for supported living.

CALL 408-727-5775 TO REGISTER

Younger children may be eligible however it is easier to demonstrate the need for older children.

You will receive an introduction and overview of IHSS with a special focus on establishing the need for protective supervision.

If your child already receives IHSS—is she/he receiving all the hours to which she/he is entitled and necessary? Services provided are based on needs, and may include:

  • domestic services (vacuuming, dusting, etc.)
  • related services (meal preparation, shopping, running errands, etc.)
  • non-medical personal care services (bowel and bladder care, grooming, bathing, etc.)
  • transportation
  • yard hazard abatement
  • protective supervision

Please attend FRAGRANCE-FREE (so the presenter doesn't wheeze or sneeze) and RSVP so we make enough materials but don't waste trees.
