taking care of my grandfather

I recently moved to Seattle from Los Angeles to take care of my grandfather who has Parkinson's. My grandmother passed away one year ago and since I can work from home and he needs help I thought it was the right thing to do. He has difficulty swallowing his food which makes meal times difficult.  Sometimes he is unable to walk and it takes a long time for him to speak because his jaw shakes.  I've been taking care of hime for about 3 months.  I was just wondering if there were others out there like me who are taking care of the grandmother or grandfather with Parkinson's.
