Long Distance Caregiving
Research indicates that long distance caregiving actually costs more money. Travel expenses, paying for in-home caregivers, etc. attribute to some of those.
I’m well acquainted with the latter reason. When my mom lived in Florida, and before she moved to North Carolina to be with me, my wife and I paid for her to live in a condo that we bought.
While the context of this podcast is about mom or dad living at home, you still have to be just as vigilant if mom or dad are in a care facility.
