In-Home Supportive Services (ihss):

The IHSS Program will pay for services that you are unable to do for yourself, so that you can remain safely in your own home. To be eligible, an adult must also be over 65 years of age, or disabled, or blind, and meet income and resource limits for the program. Disabled children may also be eligible for IHSS. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing home or board and care facilities. The types of services that are available through IHSS include housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming, and paramedical services), accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired. Eligibility for this program is determined through assessment by a social worker.
