Long-Distance Caregiving: Twenty Questions and Answers focuses on issues that are unique to long-distance caregiving whether you live next door or across the country.
Developed by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), part of the National Institutes of Health, this booklet is a gateway to ideas and resources that can help make long-distance caregiving more manageable and satisfying.
This resource often refers to caregiving for aging parents, but in fact, you can use the tips no matter who you are caring for—an older relative, family friend, or neighbor. The information is organized in a question-and-answer format. Each of these commonly asked questions has a brief answer. You can read them separately or together for a more complete picture of all the facets of caregiving from afar.
