What is long-distance caregiving?

What can I do to help me feel less frustrated?

Long-distance caregiving comes in many forms - from helping manage the money to arranging for in-home care; from providing respite care for a primary caregiver to helping a parent move to a new home or facility. Many long-distance caregivers act as information coordinators, helping aging parents understand the confusing maze of home health aides, insurance benefits and durable medical equipment. 

Caregiving is often a long-term task. What may start out as an occasional social phone call to share family news can eventually turn into regular phone calls about managing trips to the doctors, reminding to take medications or scheduling trips to the grocery store or pharmacy. Long-distance caregivers can ease their burden without feeling guilty by arranging for professional in-home care services such as bathing and dressing, meal preparation, medication reminders and transportation to the doctor or grocery store.

Having Silverado attendants in the home provides peace of mind to the long-distance caregivers knowing that their loved ones needs are being met.  If you think your loved could benefit from in-home care services performed by one of our highly trained attendants, please call Melonise Day to discuss your loved one needs at (972) 233-5500.  Schedule a complimentary assessment today!
