    My sister is a caretaker of my dad who is 84 she is having a really hard time. I pray there are more groups to reach out to these, She was on spark for a while and then left.

    This is very good advice but very hard to follow unless you have dependable help. I know while I was caring for my Mother,it was 24/7 and very hard to get a break.
No I a helping care for my MIL and it is not as challenging, but still it takes a toll.
This is great advice...but a solution,would sound better...LOL!
