Who is the Public Authority? The Public Authority for IHSS is a public agency whose purpose is to make the IHSS program in Alameda County work better for consumers and home care workers/personal assistants. The Public Authority provides services and also gives consumers a voice in how IHSS services are provided. We are an agency separate from IHSS. Nevertheless, we work closely with IHSS to provide support to IHSS consumers and homecare workers.

Mission: Our Vision is to maximize independent living and promote quality homecare services for IHSS consumers and homecare workers in Alameda County. Our Mission is to give IHSS consumers a voice in how services are provided, to improve the availability and quality of IHSS, and to support services that enhance the lives of seniors and persons with disabilities who choose to live independently and with dignity in their homes. Our Promise is to provide accessible and compassionate services so that IHSS consumers can successfully navigate the IHSS program and find and maintain quality homecare services. We promise to support the IHSS homecare workers through opportunities for employment, benefits and professional development.

Sick Leave

From CDSS:
June 1, 2019

Dear IHSS Provider,

You will get 8 hours of paid sick leave on July 1, 2019. Any earned sick leave hours you currently have will expire on June 30, 2019.

If you are a new provider and have not yet earned your sick leave hours by working a total of 100 hours providing authorized services to one or more IHSS recipient(s), you will get your 8 hours once you have worked the required number of hours and may begin using them once you have worked an additional 200 hours or 60 calendar days, whichever comes first.

All sick leave hours received on or after July 1, 2019, must be used by June 30, 2020. Any unused sick leave hours will expire at that time.

If you have any questions regarding your sick leave benefits, you may call your local county IHSS office or Public Authority.

Thank you.

**ALERT**

While this new rule does not disallow participation in unions, or health benefits, this rule disallows the deduction of not only union dues, but also health benefit premiums from the checks issued to IHSS homecare workers.

Japanese Cafe Found A Way To Employ Paralysed People As Waiters

Robot waiters are not a new concept in the technology sphere. They are already used in several cafes, such as Naulo restaurant in Nepal which has employed three humanoid waiters called 'Gingers'. However, a startup Ory Lab has taken this concept to brand new level.

This is wrong and unbelievably sad.

This is wrong and unbelievably sad.

— Local young woman being denied treatment by Kaiser who continually appeal legal decisions urging them to treat her. A tragic case of ‘deny and delay until death’ —

A resident of Alameda, California, Angela “Annie” Wilson is a 36-year-old young woman with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)— a rare, genetic neuromuscular disability. In 2016, the FDA approved the first-ever treatment for SMA, which changed the landscape, outcomes, and life-expectancies for all living with SMA. This treatment, called Spinraza (nusinersen) was FDA-approved for all ages and types of SMA— and patients of all age ranges (adult & child) are being treated with Spinraza and are seeing benefits from it.

Unfortunately, Annie has been fighting Kaiser for this medication for nearly two years. She most recently won her hearing with the Administrative Law Judge-- that fully ruled in her favor. Despite this, Kaiser is still refusing to comply with the ruling and plans to appeal (again!). Kaiser's cowardly act is a blatant attempt to save money... and by delaying and denying, they are hoping her delicate condition will take a turn so they don't have to pay for it at all. To be frank, this treatment could literally extend Annie’s life.

And time is of the essence.

We are gaining momentum with our awareness campaign on social media (with 167 shares, and counting!) But, please, continue to read and share... we must do everything we can to hold Kaiser to account! This is wrong and unethical for Kaiser to single-out Annie in such a way.

If you’d like to help us with this life-saving effort, please email: [email protected]

Thanks!

The Friends of Annie Wilson

Het is altijd goed om zelf te ervaren wat je een ander gaat adviseren. Diny wilde dan ook wel de proef op de som nemen!
