Being an only child caregiver, can feel very isolating. You may feel like you’re way in over your head and you have no one to turn to for help or support. But there are many resources available to only child caregivers. Here are a few of the best:

The National Caregivers Library

The National Caregivers Library is a great starting point. They have information on everything from how to deal with difficult behaviors to managing your own stress levels. You can also find support groups in your area or join an online community of caregivers. These groups can be a valuable source of support and information.

Caregiver Action Network

The Caregiver Action Network is a national Family Caregiver Support Program. They offer educational materials, peer support, and referrals to local programs. They also have an online forum where caregivers can connect with each other.

National Alliance for Caregiving 

The National Alliance for Caregiving is a non-profit organization that offers support and resources for caregivers. They offer educational webinars, a caregiving library, and an online community.

Talk To Your Family and Friends

You should also talk to your family and friends about your new role. They may be able to offer help and support that you didn’t even know you needed. And don’t forget to take care of yourself. This is a difficult time, and it’s important to make sure that you’re taking care of your own needs as well as your aging loved one’s

Being a caregiver is never easy, but it’s especially challenging when you’re doing it alone. Fortunately, there are many resources available to help you through this tough time. Take advantage of them, and lean on your support system—you’ll get through this!
