A few simple but effective things that you can do for your loved one include:

  • Keep in touch with video chat - If Mom or Dad doesn't use some kind of video chat app already, try to introduce it as a way to keep in touch. If you're already using video, try to make a call schedule so you can consistently check in with your loved one and pick up on any differences in how they speak, look, or act when you're chatting. 
  • Schedule everything online - If you're concerned that your parent or other relative is getting more forgetful, setting up various deliveries and payments online for them is a good way to make sure they don't fall behind on essentials. You can try to help your loved one set these services up over the phone, or wait until you're in town to sit down with them.
  • Find the right home care provider - Ideally, you want to find an in home care provider in Little Rock that can meet your relative's needs and keep you in the loop about how they're doing.
