Long-Distance Caregiving and Staying Connected with Aging Parents

After the years of love and support your parents have provided you, it is normal to feel guilt as they age, especially if you reside at a distance. As hard as it may be, it is important to understand that you are doing all you can to help, even if they reside in a memory care assisted living facility away from your hometown. At Poet’s Walk, not only do we strive to help our residents feel as at-home as possible, but we are dedicated to keeping their loved ones always in the loop about their health, the care they are receiving, and the activities which they participate in. That’s where Smile™ comes in, technology that makes for stress-free long-distance caregiving, allowing you and your family to remain updated on the wellness of your loved one.

A Personal Approach to Senior Care for a Peace of Mind

Long Distance Care GivingSmile™ is a two-way communication system for those who may be living far from elderly parents and who may be dealing with aging parents guilt. Through this technology, you can send each other messages, pictures, and videos at your own leisure; the system will notify you using your preferred method of communication.

Smile™ provides you long-distance caregiver support while providing the ongoing information you want. You can also see upcoming community events and the classes and workshops we’re putting on for our residents. It’s like being with your loved one every step of the way!
