"Established to recruit, screen, and provide a list of potential care providers."

  • Give Registry staff necessary information about the tasks to be completed and what hours have been authorized by the Social Worker,
     
  • The Consumer information will be entered into the Registry software computer to match a potential provider,
     
  • A list of computer-matched providers will be mailed within 5-7 working days,
     
  • Consumer will then interview, choose, and hire a provider.

Potential Providers:

  • Interested individuals must complete an application. A written Intake Form will be completed on every Provider,
     
  • Give necessary information about the tasks willing to do and/or experience in doing for a
    Consumer,
     
  • The Provider information will be entered into the Registry software computer to be matched with an IHSS Consumer needing services.

IHSS Registry Service will never “recommend” any provider. Potential providers are only suggestions on provider availability. It is the Consumer’s responsibility to choose which provider to hire.
