For those caregivers who've chimed in on this thread, I'm curious to know what your best source of finding resources and support were/have been?  Please share your experiences if you're inclined.  Thanks, and so nice to meet you all.

Hi at3879:  I am not, but frequently have clients who caregive for adult children for a variety of reasons.  My parents-in-law were lifelong caregivers for my brother-in-law until he passed at the age of 44 in 2017.  Are you a parent caregiving for an adult child presently?

I was the caregiver for several adult children.  I ran a group home for more than 25 years. If I can help you, please let me know.. Nancy
