Advice on how to care for a parent

My father was recently diagnosed with early-onset alzheimer’s and I don’t really know how to deal with it. We’ve never had the best relationship but now I have to care for him and I just feel overwhelmed. If anyone could offer advice on how you are able to care for your parents or general care-giving advice it would mean the world.
