According to AARP in 2019, “more than 1 in 10 family caregivers live at least an hour away from their aging or ailing family member,” and many may be even further. If you’re facing the possibility of becoming a long-distance caregiver, you may wonder what you can do to keep distance from standing in the way of helping.
At Senior Home Companions, we strive to provide the best care that we can, but we know that we can’t take the place of a loving relative. We would be proud to come alongside your family in caring for your aging loved ones so that we can help you find ways to play an active role, whether you’re across town or across the country.
You can find even more tips and in-depth information about long-distance caregiving from the National Institute on Aging, the Mayo Clinic, or you can reach out to Senior Home Companions and our Family Matters service. We can come alongside you and your family members to help you explore the topics that are difficult to approach, such as living arrangements, financial issues and legal relationships.
