​The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program allows you to live safely in your own home. Services are provided in your home, hotel, or the home of a relative. IHSS is an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities. If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or meet all Medi-Cal income requirements, you may be able to receive IHSS.
