In-Home Supportive Services Responsibilities

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) authorizes services to Medi-Cal eligible individuals who are over 65, blind, or disabled, in order to keep these individuals safely in their own homes as long as possible, preventing or postponing placement in skilled nursing or board and care facilities. Services may include personal care needs and essential domestic help.

IHSS includes personal care services for children of low income families who have a parent as the caregiver, and for disabled spouses who have an able and available spouse as a caregiver. Essential domestic services are not paid for these clients.
