My mother has dementia and I live 300 miles away from her. I also have some health issues that won't allow me to help with her as much as I'd like to. My brother and sister need more help and ask me to come get her, and as of now I can only make it happen 2 times a year and have her 2 weeks at a time. I do what I can to help at this distance like taking care of her finances, checking account, paying her bills and dealing with Medicare and Medicaid and Veterans Assistance she receives from my deceased father's time in the service. I also take care of her home when something needs fixed and get someone out to her home.
