Understanding IHSS

In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is a cornerstone program in California, designed to provide crucial support to eligible individuals who are over 65, blind, or have disabilities. The program is pivotal in allowing these individuals to live safely and comfortably in their own homes. IHSS is not just a program; it’s a lifeline for many Californians, ensuring dignity, independence, and quality of life.
