As our parents age, it becomes harder and harder to feel secure that they are safe and healthy in their home. This becomes even more difficult if we do not live nearby and are unable to “pop in” to make sure they are okay. We are left to rely on their self-report of their situation.
If our parents have memory problems, we wonder if they are accurately reporting what is happening. We may also believe that they are minimizing their struggles for fear that they will be forced out of their home. Even if our parents live in senior’s community, assisted residence or full care facility, we still worry if they are getting all the care and attention they need.
There are some things we can do from a distance to increase our full understanding of their situation, to improve the communication we have with them, and to manage the risks inherent in long distance (and close distance) caregiving. All of these suggestions can be done via the internet and phone.

Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours take a lot of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
I'm amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my search for something relating to this.
My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was entirely right. This post truly made my day. You cann't imagine just how much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!
