As our parents or family members age, we take the time to check in on them, help them run errands, and in some cases, provide daily assistance and caregiving. But what if you’re at a distance from your loved one? While a long-distance caregiver may need to take on different roles than a traditional family caregiver, you can still be actively involved in your loved one’s care.
Wendy Adoo joined the CaraVita team in December of 2019 as our Director of Client Relations.

Each year, CaraVita Home Care nominates one Care Partner from the Caregiver of the Month nominees, someone who truly exemplifies CaraVita’s vision and mission, to honor as the “Caregiver of the Year.”
There are several types of depression that can occur during different stages of life, and even during different times of the year. The types of depression can vary, and it can be difficult to recognize depression in a loved one - especially an older adult.
CaraVita Home Care's Caregiver of the Month for December 2019 is one of our fabulous live-in caregivers, Rotoya Jiles!
Being a caregiver for a loved one is an honorable action that can require a lot of patience, care, and love. If you have undertaken the role of caregiver for someone you love, you likely have realized that it is a full-time job with many responsibilities. Though caregiving is the perfect way to show your loved one you care and appreciate them, it can take a toll on your personal life and potentially, your health.
Caravita Home Care’s caregiver of the month for November 2019 is one of our longest staff members, Janie Wallace!
It can be difficult to know when the time has come to move your senior parent into a community or seek in-home care. If you don't live near your parent(s) or you don't see them often, it can be challenging to make this decision without knowing how they live on a day-to-day basis.
