My parents live a rural small town un UT. They have to drive 70 miles to a proper hospital and any specialist as well as a Walmart. I had a conversation with them 2 years ago about moving to a little bigger town which would be a little closer me. I am a 4 hour drive away from them. They are trying to hold onto their independence by staying in this 2 stop light town because they won't be able to get around in a bigger town. They are 83 and in relatively descent health. Little medical issues are beginning to come about though. I worry when they have to drive 140 miles round trip for anything major, or even the Walmart run.
Any suggestions or experience with a similar issue?
