Call the Alzheimer's organization in your area. Even if you don't need support for dementia caregiving, they will likely have a list. You local newspaper may have one, at least online. You could also try your state website and look for their version of the National Family Caregiver Support Program. They should have a list. Good luck,

So it has gotten to be 24 7 and When i move in wasn't not supposed to be like this But i need a place to stay And i thankful for that . I don't get much help So you know it get stressful physically mentally emotionally draining And she is in the arguing stage And she getting isolated Doesn't want to do much . To me the family feel like this is my job.Which it is But it would be nice for break now and then. I feel like it get to the point where people just care about there self And not the caregiver. Sorry to say that but sometime you feel like taking advantage of.
