I have Neuro-Cognitive Disorder and I am in a decline that I can detect toward dementia, so I'm keeping current with it as long as I can muster focus. My go-to right now for dementia caregiver material is Reddit. The subreddit is u/dementia, which has 34,000 members. Caregivers like you post very similar questions daily, and the responses are usually rapid and plentiful. I just counted >12 questions like yours on Reddit submitted just today, and it's early morning in the PacNW where I am. My wife will be my caregiver when/if the NCD degrades to dementia, and I want to try to lessen the impact for her, so I look for how-to's as well. I might try that in addition to Mayo.

Her Dr. told me to get our affairs in order so the Wills, Trusts, Healthcare Surrogate, Living Will, POA and Determination of Capacity have all been completed and filed. Also have a preplanned cremation set-up. The hard part is the daily routine which I'm used to now but am concerned that I may forget something. I have no health issues yet other that a recent bout of Prostate cancer which I am in treatment for now for 2 more months. I expect to be cancer free soon. We no family left as most have passed or live at the other end of the country. So the beat goes on.
