Default How to help?

A family I know has the father/grandfather in hospice care. I want to know how I can best help them. One step daughter is living with them, she is freshly released from prison and is limited in where she can go still. They have been raising her two children while she was in. The other step daughter lives 30 minutes away. She is raising three of her children, the family I am talking about is raising one of her sons, whom she said she could not handle, and her oldest son is living with his father's family. I am most worried about how to help his wife who has been living with a lot of stress trying to deal with raising the grandkids for the last several years (the other daughter was also in prison for a while and during that time grandma also had her then newborn daughter) and she is working full time. The little boy is also who I am worried about. Grandpa has been the one source of unconditional love in his life. He is already angry that his cousins now have thier mom caring for them and he still does not becuase he has been rejected by her. How can I best help this family? I have brought meals, and donated money anonymously and offered babysitting services as well as driving services and such. What else can I do?
