In-Home Support Services

In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) is designed to allow persons with significant disability to reside within their own homes by having support for personal care or household needs.

What is a Public Authority?
 

The Public Authority is mandated by state law to work in conjunction with Sutter County’s In-Home Supportive Program.

The role of the IHSS Public Authority:
  • Develop and maintain a Registry of IHSS Homecare Providers
  • Match consumers and providers
  • Check the IHSS Homecare Providers background and qualifications
  • Provide Training to Providers and Consumers

IHSS Public Authority Providers offer personal care-domestic services to those who are elderly, disabled or blind, which allow persons to remain safely in their own homes.

An IHSS Homecare Provider is a person who provides personal and domestic services to In-Home Supportive Services eligible Consumers. Duties may include personal assistance with dressing and bathing, as well as other household tasks.

An IHSS Consumer is a qualified, (usually SSI client) eligible elderly, blind or disabled person unable to remain safely in his or her homes without the assistance of a Homecare Provider.
