You live in Alaska and your father lives in Denver and needs monitoring.  By retaining the services of an advocate and care navigator you don’t need to work about distance or time.  In this case the father, with early Alzheimer’s disease, needed daily assistance with meals, grocery shopping, medical appointments and personal care.  Depending on the complexity of the situation it may be possible to hire a home care agency to provide the services and to have the care navigator provide occasional oversight.  It’s difficult to provide supervision to home care agencies if you’re not locally in the area and able to physically see results.
