– In-Home Supportive Services

The In-Home Supportive Services Program (IHSS) provides people who are blind, disabled, or over the age of 65 with personal assistance and in-home support services so they can live safely in their homes. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care such as nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

Services can range from assistance with household chores and personal care (such as bathing, grooming and feeding) to accompaniment to medical appointments and protective supervision for the mentally impaired.

IHSS recipients may qualify for up to 283 hours of service per month. Recent legislation allows for the use of some IHSS services at the workplace.

Ms. Cochran has experience in obtaining eligibility for protective supervision.
