IHSS Caregiver Registry

​​​​​​​​What is the Caregiver Registry?

The Sacramento County IHSS Caregiver Registry is a database of specially screened caregivers who are looking to work for IHSS recipients/consumers. This is a free referral service available to all IHSS recipients. Please note, all IHSS providers are not part of the Caregiver Registry. The Registry has an application process separate from Provider Enrollment. ​

How does the Registry Work?

When a recipient calls the Registry looking for a new caregiver, Registry Specialists look at specific consumer needs, provider skills, availability, demographic data and other job-related factors in order to find the best potential matches. A list of names is sent to the IHSS consumer.

The Recipient is the employer and is therefore responsible for interviewing, hiring, and supervising the caregiver they select from the referral list.

How can I join the registry?

Active IHSS providers interested in joining the registry can submit an application along with work history and two professional references. All applications must have a wet signature.

As of January 1, 2022​, the current pay rate for IHSS caregivers in Sacramento County is $16.00 per hour (i.e. $1.00 above current minimum wage rate).
