We are 17,600 Home Care workers who provide professional, personalized care to residents in Santa Clara County who are seniors, children and adults with disabilities through the In-Home Supportive Services program. As in-home care providers, our services help more than 17,000 clients to live independently and with dignity at home.

Home Care Workers ready to win
Home Care Workers and their supporters attended the Board meeting on Nov. 26. They are ready to win for “Quality Care @ Home” and to put our Community First!

Given that the population is aging and the need for In-Home Supportive Services will only grow in the future, Santa Clara County needs to put our Community First and:

  • Provide professional, personalized home care services
  • Invest in and develop the home care workforce
  • Increase access to home care through improved public awareness

Thanks Carol and Bob – SEIU 521 Retirees – for standing up for Home Care workers as they try to win a livable wage while performing a vital service for our most vulnerable population.
