Coping with Long Distance Caring

You may find that you don’t live nearby to a relative who is sick and who lives alone. Trying to help from a distance can be frustrating. You may feel powerless.

You may find it difficult to contact health professionals or find out exactly what is happening. Ask the GP for a case conference or family meeting. This will help you to find out who is involved and for them to know who the family are.
