Hi Michele. Thank you for your question! We are happy to suggest supportive services in SF that will help you cope with your difficult role. The Family Caregiver Alliance is based in San Francisco, and they offer support groups, fact sheets, and a Caregiver Connections newsletter that may help you feel less alone on your caregiving journey. The National Alliance for Caregiving also has information on working and caring, finances, and national conferences for family caregivers. In addition the Caregiver Action Network hosts forums for family caregivers to discuss common interests including mental health, emotional support, long distance caregiving and more. These sites also offer volunteering opportunities which may help raise your spirits, as well as local events that bring caregivers together. If you simply need a break from your caregiving duties - whether it's for a day, a weekend, or a week - Seniorly can help. We can connect you with local care communities that offer respite stays, so that you can go on vacation or take a well-deserved day off, knowing your loved ones are in good hands. Feel free to email us at ask@seniorly.com or call us at (415) 570-4370. Thanks for reaching out. Your parents are certainly lucky to have your support, but you don't have to go through this alone. There are resources that can help!
