The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program is a federal, state, and locally funded program designed to provide assistance to those eligible aged, blind, and disabled individuals who, without this care, would be unable to remain safely in their own homes. In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) provides services according to the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) recipient’s ability to perform daily activities, and can include feeding, bathing, dressing, housekeeping, laundry, shopping, meal preparation and clean up, respiration, bowel & bladder care, moving in and out of bed, rubbing the skin (to prevent skin breakdown), accompaniment to medical appointments, paramedical services, and protective supervision. In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) recipients are responsible for locating their own home care providers, for hiring and supervising their providers, and for firing the provider if the services are not performed according to the client’s specifications. Additionally, the In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Public Authority maintains a registry of individuals available to work as home care providers.

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) Social Workers determine if you qualify for In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) by assessing your functional need for specific services, and by identifying the amount of time to be allotted for the performance of services. Depending on the amount of your monthly income, you may be required to pay a share of cost for these services.
