Mar 2022 - A discussion on challenges of long distance caregiving for elderly family members with Rima Pande, Nisha Sinha, Pratima Penumarthy, & Dr. Rohit Chandra with his thoughtful inputs. Staying in touch from a distance requires regular communication & involving others to help. No matter where we live, we're all called to help our parents. We don't always see the forest for the trees and need time to prepare our families for the future.
If one has to pick the most important recommendation for long-distance caregivers, it’s planning ahead. Please take a moment to read a story written by Rima Pande. It is a fictionalized account of her relationship with her ailing father in the last years of his life (https://www.hisvoice.life); She accounts her experiences living in the U.S. while her father struggled to recover from a stroke.
Thanks Rima Pande for sharing your story.
