Long-Distance Home Care

Senior Care for Families Separated by Long Distance

Today, many families live hundreds or thousands of miles apart. Under normal circumstances, phone calls and text messages can help you overcome these distances. But when you are the primary caregiver for an elderly parent or relative and require immediate senior care, you will need more than just a smartphone.

These kinds of scenarios can be stressful for you and your loved one. Visiting Angels has designed specialized home care services to accommodate long-distance situations. Whether your loved one lives 90-minutes down the interstate or a nine-hour plane ride away, Visiting Angels can help bridge the gap.

Visiting Angels' long-distance home care makes it easy to find in-home care providers in your loved one's area. A personalized approach will ensure your loved one receives the care they need to live at home safely and comfortably. Professional caregivers will go the extra mile to keep you and your family in the caregiving process, no matter how many miles away you live.

Long-Distance Caregiving: A Proven Approach

With more than 20 years of elderly care experience, Visiting Angels has a proven history of long-distance caregiving, helping families who live in different cities, counties, or states.

Here are some ways Visiting Angels adapts elder care services for long-distance at-home support:

  • Connecting Clients with Care
    Unsure where to find in-home care in another city or county? Simply contact the nearest Visiting Angels' home care office that serves your loved one's area or call 1-800-365-4189.

  • Long-Distance Consultations
    Visiting Angels will coordinate an initial home care consultation to ensure you and other family members are included in the consultation process. Even if you live on the other side of the world, we can keep you involved via phone, email, or video.

  • Care Planning and Scheduling
    A coordinator will develop a comprehensive home care plan and schedule as well as communicate with you by phone or email to get your input. You will also be involved when selecting a caregiver for your loved one to find the perfect care provider.

  • Ongoing Communication
    Once care has started, you will receive regular updates, including notes about your loved one's physical, emotional, and cognitive well-being as well as any changes in their health or living situation.

  • Monitoring and Check-Ins
    Between scheduled visits, Visiting Angels can perform drop-in visits or make check-in calls to ensure your loved one's safety and well-being. Each Visiting Angels' office operates an after-hours phone line for unexpected emergencies.

  • Multi-Location Care
    If your loved one splits time between two cities or makes frequent long-distance trips to visit family, Visiting Angels will coordinate appropriate care through its national network of home care offices.

Personalized Long-Distance Services

Visiting Angels will design a personalized care plan for a long-distance aging parent or relative tailored to their health needs, habits, routines, personal preferences, and living situation. Sometimes, this may include short-term respite care when you may be out of reach due to family or work obligations.

Long-distance in-home assistance includes emotional support and standard services, such as companion care and personal care. Specialized support, including Alzheimer’s care and dementia care, is provided for individuals with memory disorders. Other services, including a Safe and Steady fall prevention program, can be helpful if your loved one lives alone.
