Williston, VT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2018 -- According to a survey conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving, nearly 34 million Americans are caregivers for an elderly parent. Out of that number, almost five million are living more than an hour away from the person they are caring for. Long-distance caregiving can pose unique challenges for all parties involved, and for those families that find caregiving from a distance especially difficult, Griswold Home Care of Northern Vermont is here to help.

Griswold Home Care knows how stressful it can be for families that are far away from a cherished loved one who needs care. Therefore, the agency works to ease both the client and his or her family's concerns by providing continued emotional support, an unmatched level of professional care, and regular updates on the client's health, safety, and happiness.

While some clients may only need a few hours of care each week, there are some that will be better suited with 24/7 live-in care. Griswold Home Care works with families near and far to truly understand what their needs are, so they can provide the most useful services. The company can also help with connecting families to the organizations and resources they need so their loved ones can function safely and happily at home. For example, if the client needs a wheelchair ramp installed or requires a pharmacy that can bubble-pack meds, Griswold Home Care can connect the client or any loved ones with the right organizations to provide those services. Essentially, whatever the client needs, Griswold Home Care will help to provide.

For further information regarding the long-distance caregiving provided by the compassionate team at Griswold Home Care of Northern Vermont, visit the company's website or call 802-662-1799.
