Riverside County Public Authority Honored for Emergency Back-up Caregiver Program!

The National Association of Counties recognized the IHSS PA program titled “Ensuring Safety: IHSS Caregiver Back-up System (BUS)” in the category of Human Services. The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Caregiver Back-Up System (BUS) is an innovative, 24-hour, in-home emergency caregiver program designed to provide stabilization services and support to elderly and disabled clients who are assessed to be at risk of harm due to caregiver absence and serious safety concerns. It is an enhancement to In- home Supportive Services, a statewide Medi-Cal benefit program.
