LTC Insurance Quote


I need help. Are there any support groups that deal with caring for a grandparent after they have lost their spouse? I am 39 years old and have been my 82-year-old grandmother's primary caretaker for three years. I also am a stay-at-home mom to my three children, one who is 16 and has Asperger's syndrome, my 14-year-old who has traumatic brain injury, and my 12-year-old. My family has distanced themselves from my grandmother and aren't an option for helping. My mom does what she can, but works full time. I am so overwhelmed and need a place to vent. I can't seem to find a support group for overwhelmed burned-out caregivers in my area. Please help if you can. Thanks.
