Helpful Hint #05

When siblings are scattered around the country, consensus and participation in care giving is important. Your brother in New York may be able to participate by sending money which increases care giving choices. Your sister in Florida may invite mom to stay with her for a month or two, giving you, the local caregiver, some needed respite.

Your sister in Maryland who just retired may come home for a month, again giving the local caregiver respite. Your brother at Microsoft can research support for you that you probably didn’t know existed. Siblings can contribute within the range of things they can reasonably do. ASK FOR HELP.
