In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is a federal, state, and locally funded program designed to provide assistance to eligible aged, blind, and disabled individuals who, without this care, would be unable to remain safely in their own homes, and would be at risk of being placed in a care facility. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities.

Some services that can be authorized through IHSS include: housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services, accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired.
