Many are employed full or part-time and need help balancing both work and caregiving. The Family Caregiver Alliance article "Work and Eldercare" helps to get you started and then moves on to specifics. It has advice on finding community resources, discussion of informal arrangements, in-home care, adult day care, residential placement, legal/financial issues, and handling stress.

Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA) was the first community-based nonprofit organization in the country to address the needs of families and friends providing long-term care at home. FCA now offers programs at national, state and local levels to support and sustain caregivers. Family Caregiver Alliance is a public voice for caregivers, illuminating the daily challenges they face, offering them the assistance they so desperately need and deserve, and championing their cause through education, services, research and advocacy.
