The Registry is a resource of qualified Care Providers maintained by the Public Authority. Registered IHSS Care Providers are matched with eligible and enrolled IHSS Care Recipients. We aim to facilitate positive and lasting employment relationships by connecting those IHSS Recipients who are in need of care with registered independent Care Providers seeking meaningful work.

For Care Recipients: Referral List
It is the responsibility of the IHSS Care Recipient to locate and hire an IHSS Care Provider. This process can be challenging, and those in need of assistance may call the Public Authority for a list of Care Provider referrals.
The IHSS Provider Registry is a comprehensive database of available Care Providers who have completed a background check and have submitted to additional screening and training to help assure quality care to the Recipient. The skills of the Care Provider are matched with the needs of the Care Recipient to create a referral list of potential caregivers that are available for hire.
