Personal Care Assistance 
Have you been wrestling with issues of Pers onal Care Assistance and decided that it is finally time to get some help?   Consider joining a network of peers with disabilities who also use the services of Personal Care Assistants (PCA). CILO's PCA Networking Group can share tips and ideas for maintaining freedom, flexibility and control in how to find, hire and keep personal care assistants. This group provides an opportunity to discuss ideas and ways to overcome the acute shortage of PCAs, triggering a crisis and silent epidemic for people with disabilities across the nation. If interested in being part of this discussion, please call Suzanne Hopkins, Director of Programs, at (513) 241-2600, ext. 122 or email
