IHSS is a Sonoma County Human Services Department program designed to help low-income elderly and people of any age living with a disability remain living safely and independently in their own home. IHSS is an alternative to out-of-home care. Clients of the program select their own caregiver. The program pays the wages of caregivers for providing services necessary to maintain safety and independence in their home. Services are limited to tasks the individual is unable to do on their own.
