All other offices remain closed to the public. Individuals arriving at the Adult Services Office will be met by staff who will ask about the purpose of their visit and will conduct a short screening questionnaire before the individual can enter the lobby. Visitors who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask. Visitors who are unvaccinated are required to wear a mask or cloth facial covering for the duration of their visit. Children 2 years and younger, those who have breathing issues, or those with an underlying medical or mental health issue are exempt from wearing a mask.

Provides supportive services to older adults and individuals who live with blindness, a disability, and who are limited in their ability to care for themselves and cannot live at home safely without assistance. This includes people who would be able to return to their homes from hospitals, nursing homes, or board and care homes, if they had help at home. Recipients will hire, terminate, and supervise their own provider. The recipient's social worker will approve the types of services to be provided and the amount of time to be paid based on a needs assessment. The actual provider payments are issued by the State of California directly to the provider.

  • Household and heavy cleaning

  • Laundry
  • Reasonable shopping and errands
