Transcript

  • 1. How to Help from Far Away
    • You are not alone—about 7 million Americans are long-distance caregivers
    • A US Dept of Labor study found that 30% of employees are family caregivers!
    • The National Institute on Aging reports that long-distance caregivers often feel the most guilt and anxiety
    • Explore resources that can help you improve your parent’s life, even from far away
  • 2. What You Can Do
    • What You Can Do Long-Distance
    • Making time to visit— catch up, chat, do fun activities—with your parent when you are in town is important
    • Be honest with yourself about how often can you travel: financially, emotionally, and with the constraints of your career
    • Get as much information as you can about your parent’s condition
    • Find ways to stay in touch with your parent so you are aware of changes or problems
    • How We Can Help
    • Ensure that your parent’s phone is easy to use and loud enough for them to hear
    • Have a professional set-up an email printer box so your parent can receive easy to read, printed emails
    • Have a professional install a digital picture frame that will automatically download photos from an account you set up online
