Long-Distance Caregiving and Staying Connected with Aging Parents

July 7, 2017 | Blog

Watching your parents or loved one grow older can be so difficult, especially when you live at a distance. They’ve taken care of you through the years and you wish you could be there for them now! Aging parents guilt is common among those caring for senior parents from a distance, but it is important to remember you are still doing your part to help.

Spring Hills understands how important family is and how you need that peace of mind, knowing that your loved one is being cared for. That’s why our team of caregivers has implemented Smile™, a technology that allows you to remain in the know about your loved one.

Dedicated to holistic care methods, we know how important family engagement and communication are for our residents and home care recipients. This is especially true for those living far away from their elderly parents. Smile™ provides two-way communication for you and your loved one, using your preferred method of notification to receive updates and messages. This personalized approach to caring for and monitoring your loved one–even from a distance–provides a peace of mind that so many adult children have trouble attaining.
