Family/friends: Seek the support of your family and friends and see if anyone can provide assistance. You can also contact the physician involved in the care, to see if there are other services that may offer help, like respite services and home health agencies for companion support. There are also private organizations that are able to provide assistance.

Caregiving: If you are fortunate enough to have family and friends go to one of them. W/out that please contact a social service or visiting nurse association in your area, or your primary care doctor. Have legal paperwork in order so that confusion will be at a minimum if and when the need is there. Peace and good health.
