Elderly Woman:  Protect seniors physically, emotionally, financially from abuse.  

San Luis Obispo County, California Resources

The Adult Protective Services program protects dependent adults and seniors. It investigates allegations of abuse, intervenes when necessary, and provides community education. Services are provided without regard to income, to assure that elderly and dependent adults who live in the community and who are in danger of neglect, abuse, or exploitation receive prompt intervention to investigate and mitigate abuse. We provide 24-hour response to persons in immediate danger; as well as service coordination, counseling, case management, in-home protection and supportive services to victims of abuse.

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS):

The In-Home Supportive Services Program provides domestic and personal care services to over 2,000 seniors and disabled residents through the services of over 1,400 caregivers. Domestic care such as meal preparation, laundry, shopping and personal care services are provided to enable elderly, blind, or disabled persons to remain in their own home, to help maintain and strengthen capability for self-care, and to safeguard functioning in their own home rather than being placed outside of the home in an assisted living situation. You may be eligible for IHSS if you are disabled or a senior (over the age of 65 years) or at risk of placement in out of home care. In order to be eligible for IHSS you must either be a current recipient of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or be eligible for the State's Medi-Cal Program. IHSS is provided through individual providers who are hired by you, monitored by the Department, and paid by the State.
