First of all this is NOT In Home Support Services, IHSS is a government organization and most providers who work for IHSS are providers for disabled, handicapped, elderly, et. al. persons. If you have someone at home who is very ill and requires assistance with life care, the provider (who is a member of the SEIU 15) are the persons they are calling for or trying to contact. If you ever had someone to assist with a bath... to prepare a meal, you may have come in contact with a union card carrying provider.
