Resources
These are links to some of the best sites, blogs, and books I have found for help with issues ranging from caregiving, to housing and healthcare, to end of life.
Good Resources for Caregivers.
       One of the best sites I recommend to caregivers is the Family Caregiver Alliance, listed below.  They
have a comprehensive, state by state list of city, county, state, and national resources.
