“The average adult child lives 480 miles away from their parent”, says Katharine Ross, Vice President of Seniors Guide Magazine and

“While visiting family during the holidays, a lot can change from the previous year – including new issues and concerns with mobility, healthcare, and the ability to care for themselves”, says Ross.

While more seniors and families begin to go online for quick research and initial inquiries into local healthcare resources, phone calls and visits follow as the next step.

“Families still like to talk to potential caregivers face-to-face and visit nursing homes and facilities before a decision is made involving their loved one”, says Ross.

Online, Seniors Guide provides articles to help with research. “Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Home Caregiver” and “What to Ask When Visiting a Retirement Community” are just two frequently read resources within the website’s online library.
