In doing some research for a close friend who is coping as an only adult offspring, trying to do the right thing. for her aging father I came across this marvelous list put out by the American Medical Association (AMA) If you care facing a challenge caring for someone in your life I urge you to take this test that will weigh your stress-level.

The National Caregivers Library has lots of helpful resources.

Further I’d recommend reading: COUNTING ON KINDNESS by Wendy Lustbader (out of print, get at the library or used) or MY MOTHER ,YOUR MOTHER by Dr. Dennis McCullough.
