The Calaveras Works and Human Services Agency provides the In-Home Supportive Services Program in order to enable aged, blind, disabled and handicapped persons to maintain independent living arrangements.
IHSS is an alternative to “out-of-home” care for those persons who desire to live in their own home, but require certain domestic and non-medical personal service to ensure their safety.
The IHSS Program is under the direction and guidance of Calaveras Works and Human Services Social Services Staff. It is their responsibility to determine both eligibility and service needs. Authorized services are delivered by Independent Providers (IPs), employed by each Consumer.
