Long Distance Caregiving

Even if you do not live in the same area as your loved one you can still be caring for them from afar. Doing this is not always easy as you are not close by for check ins, you might not know the area and what is available for community resources, etc. Utilize your local Caregiver Specialist who can be there to help guide you through the options that may be available.

Here’s a list of things to think about when you do visit to be prepared for, how is each task getting complete:
-Meals and self-care
-Shopping, errands and household chores
-Medications and doctor’s appointments
-Money management and paying bills
-Driving and transportation
-Social activities
-Mental or emotional health
