Adult Protective Services (APS)
APS helps elders and dependent adults who need protection to stop abuse or neglect and to live safely. APS investigates allegations of abuse and neglect, including self neglect, of elders and dependent adults and provides information and referral, assessment, and short term case management.
In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)
IHSS is a program for services to low income elderly and disabled individuals and couples who need assistance in order to remain safely in their own homes. Disabled children with extraordinary need may also receive IHSS. IHSS Social Workers make a home visit to determine eligibility and need for IHSS and complete an assessment of the applicant’s ability to complete activities of daily living. View the latest issue of "CARE" Newsletter (January 2011).
General Assistance
GA benefits offers financial assistance and emergency homeless assistance to disabled or unemployed single adults. GA also provides SSI advocacy, employment services, and burial assistance.
Public Guardian/Public Administrator
The Public Guardian / Public Administrator Unit initiates the Court process to invoke and renew conservatorships, handles the affairs of individuals who die without family to administer their estates, and provides case management for conserved persons with mental health disabilities, dementia, or severe frailty.
Public Authority
