This workshop itemizes some of the common issues that arise with long-distance caregiving and looks at some ways to address them.
In this mobile society of ours family members are often flung across the country, or even the globe. This poses unique challenges for caregiving when someone develops Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. This workshop itemizes some of the common issues that arise with long-distance caregiving and looks at some ways to address them. If you are a service provider it will provide a framework for supporting long-distance caregivers. If you are a caregiver it will provide some direction for your journey.
