Managing your parent’s health remotely

Concern about mom or dad’s health is top of mind for many baby boomers today. But, how do you do this if you live far away – an hour away, in a different state or another country?

Most important is to prepare BEFORE THERE IS A CRISIS!

  • Reduce the chances of falls by making their home senior friendly; grab bars, increased lighting, hand rails, anti-skid mats, and contrasting colors are helpful.
  • Know where all their important papers are located; health records, banking, social security, health insurance, legal documents, list of healthcare providers.
  • Research and tour facilities in your or your parent’s areas to know what is available to you when you need it.
