Comments from the 2015/2016 IHSS/PA Advisory Committee Chair

Happy New Year!  We have accomplished so much in the past couple of years.  We are pleased to announce that we plan to summarize all of our goals and accomplishments in an annual report very soon.  Once we do that you will see how busy we have been advocating on behalf of IHSS consumers and providers in Solano County.  An upcoming goal of ours is to make recommendations regarding the improvement of IHSS and Medi-Cal and we want to hear your story.  As such, we have published a survey online and over the next 6 months we will be encouraging IHSS consumers to complete it online.  To access this survey, go to:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G8FWX3L 

We began planning our Spring Outreach Conference once again, and the date is set for Thursday, May 18, 2017 at the North Bay Health Care Conference Center located at 4500 Business Center Drive in Fairfield, CA.  This will be the third year that we've used this venue and have been continually satisfied.  We'll have a continental breakfast, great speakers, a hot lunch, some raffle drawings and some wonderful giveaways.   We would like to get the word out that consumers are urged to attend as well as providers!   To register for this wonderful conference, you can either call the Public Authority at (707)784-8200 or register online at:  www.solanoihssconference2017.eventbrite.com

We continue to have 9 active members on our Advisory Committee, however we do have room for 2 more members. If you are interested in joining us, Membership Applications are available through the Public Authority at (707)784-8200.  

Lastly, I would like to invite all IHSS consumers, providers and family members to attend our Advisory Committee meetings - the schedule is listed above. We are YOUR voice for anything regarding IHSS or the Public Authority, so we would love to hear from you!   

I am happy to represent you as the Chairwoman of the Advisory Committee.  Remember to “Always Look Up” & “Keep Moving Forward” because that’s what I do! 

Keep smiling and God Bless!
