In Home Care Severely Reduced By California Budget Cuts

In Home Care Severely Reduced By California Budget Cuts

In-Home Supportive Services care will be reduced or axed for 130,000 Californians starting Nov. 1, the state Department of Social Services announced Friday.

The program pays caregivers with a combination of federal, state and county money, as well as recipients’ out-of-pocket contributions.

Hours are assigned to caregivers in the homes of blind and disabled children, or low-income seniors over 65 with varying degrees of frailty.

The Social Services Department was required to cut $82.1 million in in-home care this year due to state budget cuts.

About 97,000 recipients ranked as relatively capable will lose certain services, including housekeeping, meal preparation, shopping and errand assistance. Another 36,000 will lose all services.

Social workers contend in-home aid helps keep recipients from having to enter nursing homes, which can cost the public more.
