You also might want to bring in a professional, perhaps a trusted doctor or lawyer, to offer advice.
BUILD A SUPPORT SYSTEM
Many communities offer transportation and meal delivery for elderly residents; call and find out what’s available.
Even if your parents don’t need much support, you might want to find clubs or organizations where they can socialize. You don’t want your parents becoming isolated. Make sure they know where to reach old friends who may have moved, and tell friends and acquaintances if your parent is moving to a new home.
Finally, find a support group for yourself. Just because you aren’t providing daily care in person “doesn’t mean that at a distance you don’t need support,” Shovali says. Along with encouragement, you might find good practical advice from people with more experience caring for parents.
