Prepare to Care: A Resource Guide for Families was developed by AARP to help make the job more manageable. It includes information on how to have vital conversations with older family members, organize important documents, assess your loved one's needs and locate important resources.
These guides are available in multiple languages as well as specialized guides for populations such as LGBT. A guide is also available for family members currently in a caregiving role.
Although there is no complete road map to every caregiving journey, this is an incredible resource with abundant information.
