Age or disability may bring changes to how you manage your daily life. These changes can be hard, but you don’t have to do it alone.

ADVANCE DIRECTIVES

You can download this easy-to-read form in many languages. Complete the Advance Directive Form with your loved ones. It will inform your doctor and family and/or friends how you want to be cared for when you no longer can make decisions for yourself.

IN-HOME CARE

Members with Medi-Cal may be eligible for In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS). IHSS is a government-funded program. It assists aged, blind, and disabled people who, without this care, could not remain safely in their homes.

To apply in Alameda County, please call 1.510.577.1900 (all languages).
