Long-distance caregiving comes with its own unique challenges, whether you live an hour, a state line or even an entire continent away. As a caregiver for a parent, you’re responsible for the decisions that impact both their life and your own. The stress of this responsibility can be high, along with the guilt of feeling like there’s more you could do. Recent studies have shown that long-distance caregiving can mean spending an average of nearly $12,000 each year in care-related expenses. Yet despite the distance, however great it may be, you can still provide excellent support and compassion to ensure your loved ones enjoy a high quality of life.
