Long distance caregivers may also consider adult day care for their loved ones. Adult day care centers such as Active Day ( http://www.activeday.com ) provide an inexpensive healthcare option that provides a much needed break for caregivers, and allows long distance caregivers the peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in good hands. While attending adult day care, their loved ones can socialize with friends for the day, and if necessary, receive proper medical attention. Transportation is also available so truly long distance caregivers can know they've made a great choice in sending their loved ones to an adult day care center a few days a week or even 5.
