Caregivers And Helping From A Distance
Brain and nervous system problems are common. These neurological disorders include multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and stroke, and can affect memory and ability to perform daily activities.
Caring for a family member or friend with Alzheimer’s disease isn’t exactly easy or fun. And when you live across the country, or even just across a state line, the distance adds an extra set of challenges.
According to the National Alliance for Caregiving and the Alzheimer’s Association, about 12 % of all caregivers live over an hour away. Their out-of-pocket expenses related to care are much higher than those of caregivers who live nearby.
Dr. Wecki reminds “You could always put them away in a home, back in the 80s we called it “Shady Pines” but todays nursing homes are nothing like then. Patients hardly escape.” Caregivers living a distance from their burden are encouraged to seek help in these stressful scenarios.
