They also assist with domestic care such as laundry, cooking, feeding, companionship, transportation to doctor appointments, and shopping. RIL can assist consumers with finding and hiring a private-pay personal assistant or homecare worker, and offers training & resources in managing an assistant/homecare worker. RIL also offers quarterly classes for people interested in becoming a homecare worker or personal assistant privately or through IHSS.
