Some services that can be authorized through IHSS include: housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, personal care services (such as bowel and bladder care, bathing, grooming and paramedical services), accompaniment to medical appointments, and protective supervision for the mentally impaired.

To be eligible for IHSS Services, a person must meet the following conditions:
•        Be disabled, blind, or age 65 or older (children potentially eligible)
•        Unable to live safely in their own home without assistance
•        Meet financial need requirement
