This program helps pay for services provided to you so that you can remain safely in your own home. To be eligible, you must be over 65 years of age, or disabled, or blind. Disabled children are also eligible for IHSS. IHSS is considered an alternative to out-of-home care, such as nursing homes or board and care facilities.
The types of services which can be authorized through IHSS are 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 mentally impaired.
IHSS pays for elderly, blind and disabled people to get help at home as long as they meet income and other eligibility requirements.
On November 4, 2013, the State of California will begin using a new Payroll System (CMIPS II) for In Home Supportive Services providers in Amador County. This system will bring a change in how providers will process their timesheets! All timesheets will need to be mailed to the new statewide Timesheet Processing Facility (TPF) in Chico, CA. Click here to access a video which gives instructions on how to complete IHSS timesheets and how to avoid common timesheet mistakes which may delay payment
