Caring for an older family member

There is an association for relatives and friends who are caring for people with a disability, mental illness, chronic condition or who are frail aged.
Carers NSW produces several fact sheets with information about support for carers, financial assistance and legal issues.
Topics include:
* Caring for an older person

* Considering Residential Care

* Caring for someone in Residential Care

The information is sometimes specific to NSW and the full list can be seen at the CarersNSW site:
