In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS)

The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program provides services to assist eligible aged or blind persons or persons with disabilities who are unable to remain safely in their own homes without this assistance. IHSS is an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities. Recipients must be eligible for or receiving Medi-Cal. The types of services which may be authorized through IHSS include:

  • Personal care services such as feeding, bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming, dressing, mobility and transfer assistance, and paramedical care
  • Protective supervision
  • Ancillary services consisting of accompaniment to medical appointments, fittings of health-related devices, or sites where alternate resources provide care in lieu of IHSS
