Tips for Long Distance Caregivers

Do you have a parent or grandparent living with dementia? Do you live in another city or even a different country than your loved one? If so, you know how difficult it can be to stay connected. You may feel guilty for being so far away, and wish you were closer and able to help more. Hopefully, you are fortunate enough to have siblings or other relatives nearby who care for the person, so you can rest easy knowing they are not alone and that their needs are being met.

Skimming is Out; Shimming is In

If you're looking out for elderly loved ones, you'll want to know about this new scamming technique. As you may know, banks and credit card companies created security chips and issued new cards to combat scammers and skimming machines. In response, scammers have developed a new technique called “shimming.” A shim is a paper thin, plastic device that has an embedded microchip and storage.

Helping Your Parents to Downsize

Your parents have decided to downsize from their home of fifty years to a condo or apartment. How do you possibly begin to declutter and help them reduce their possessions? Downsizing can be an emotional job, so it is best to start as soon as possible to allow yourself and them enough time to complete the task. You don’t want to leave it to the last minute or create an unnecessary crisis. It will be stressful enough so don’t make it any more stressful than it needs to be. It will be helpful if you create a plan. Where are they moving to and how much space will they have? Who will help with the process of downsizing? What will you do with everything?
