Help! This is all new to me...

I came across this website in a desperate attempt to find help with my current situation.
Although I am not the one caring for my grandmother, my mother is and I am not sure how much longer she can cope.
I am looking for some information on how to "cope" with living with alzheimers disease and support groups or any other kind of information for that matter.
My mother is playing the martyr a bit on this, but she still is in some sort of denial that this is even happening. I feel that she is not being proactive about any of this and I want to help, but only if I have my ducks in a row...
I feel that seeing things from an outside perspective gives me an advantage of sorts. Although I cannot begin to understand what my mother is going through, I want to help. I can't have Grandma move in with me, I would like to be there for her as much as I can.
Can anyone help???
