The hard part is over.
I'm matching you with one of our specialists who will be calling you in the next few minutes.
CA has IHHS program and based on what others have posted the in the home paid family CG is paid slightly above minimum wage for your area and it is fully reported with taxes & FICA with 20 hrs a week average. There will be a limit to the # of hours allowed. If they get assessed to need over 36/40 hrs a week, they’ll likely be assessed to need skilled care in a facility with 24/7 oversight. So watch what you wish for in # of hours.
You might want to see if there is a PACE program in your city. If so, they might be assessed and determined to be placed at the PACE center 2 - 4 days a week with transportation provided by PACE. For PACE, they need to be “duals” that is on Medicare and Medicaid BUT it would be for community based Medicaid which has different & higher income & asset limits than for in facility LTC Medicaid which basically requires them to be impoverished with a max of 2k in nonexempt assets.
You can find out where to apply through medicaid. After you apply a separate social worker will then come to your home and help determine how many hours of paid help can be approved - depending on what your loved one can and can not do for themselves .... Hope that helps.
