Try going to your state Web site. Find contact information under "aging services" or something similar and then email or call that person. You could also see if you state has 2-1-1 - it's like 9-1-1 only for services provided with contacts. Not every state is signed on, but many are.

Your friend may have to move to a nursing home eventually, as you are into around-the-clock care and it's unlikely, if you are working, you can provide this for long. You are certainly caring people.
Good luck,
Carol
