How to Get Help

When it comes to caregiving help and information, it can be a challenge just to narrow down the list of sources that are likely to be most helpful to you. Take a little time to learn where -- and how -- to get assistance.

Major types of caregiving resources include:

  • Federal, state, and local government agencies
  • Professional associations
  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Seniors' groups



Ease your burden by delegating some duties. Start by making separate lists of all the things you do and the friends and family who could help.
