Abstract

A growing number of Americans are managing and monitoring long-distance caregiving for an elderly parent. The authors offer a first-hand experience of caregiving involving an African-American family, which will be useful to both caregivers and practitioners. The challenges that result from long-distance caregiving are discussed. A detailed case study and assessment is followed by suggested strategies for lessening caregiver stress.
