In brief: Thru your physician
If your parent is severely ill and getting care thru a physician, hospital, or clinic--these clinicians often have connections to social workers or counselors who can give you advice, for instance if you your parent needs hospice care or if you qualify for in home help.
Many caretakers find help thru internet groups who share their experiences about specific illnesses.
