Whether you live an hour away or across the country from an older loved one who needs care, you may be facing the complexities of long-distance caregiving. You want to help with the care of your senior relative or friend as much as you can, but the miles between the both of you pose a challenge to you staying accurately informed and the care recipient obtaining reliable help.

To create a care plan that works, begin by talking with your care recipient and any primary caregiver about how you can be of most help. Even though you cannot readily be there in person, your contribution as a long-distance caregiver is still vital. You can coordinate many of the care needs remotely via phone or email.
