FAQ Friday: Long Distance Caregiving

There’s a lot of people who have found a great place for their family to live and admittedly #Alameda is a beautiful place to live and (if we can toot our own horn a bit) The Lodge is one of the best places for #assistedliving for the #elderly in the #EastBay. So what happens when you’ve given them the best and the care they deserve, but that means you’re holding onto your family’s dream property and keeping it in the family, ..even though that means that you’re living in some place like Grass Valley, Honolulu, or San Diego?
For those people who have chosen this path or just wanted their loved ones to live in beautiful, sunny Alameda, the best option is to become a long-distance caregiver. These days it’s easier than ever to stay connected through technology virtually, and with us at The Waters Edge Lodge and AEC Living, you’ve already set them up with us for a great shot at thriving in their golden years. But there are still a lot of questions surrounding what exactly should be done as a responsible party and how does one become a caregiver that can effectively help manage the care of their loved one from so far away?
Thankfully the National Institute on Aging has given us a quick list of things you can do to help become a long distance caregiver. Please read through and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to talk to our nursing staff, our Community Living Specialists, Michael and Dave, or your Administrator at The Lodge for more information.
