The goal of the IHSS program is to enable elderly and/or disabled persons to remain safely in independent living as long as possible. IHSS Services may include meal preparation and clean-up, food shopping, bathing, dressing, personal care, domestic services (cleaning) assistance with medications, etc. This in- home assistance is designed to allow persons to remain in their home rather than be placed in an institutional setting. The IHSS program currently serves over 11,000 consumers in Riverside County and this number is growing. Clients can be served by Independent Providers, hired and supervised by the consumer themselves, or by a provider referred to the client by an agency contracted with the County to provide services.
