The In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS) program in San Mateo County provides home care services to Medi-Cal eligible inviduals including the elderly, blind, or individuals with disabilities, including children, to assist them to remain safely in their own homes. Types of services may include help with preparing meals, bathing, dressing, laundry, shopping or transportation. Some types of paramedical services may also be provided, such as wound care.
