With families scattered in various parts of the country -- or even in parts of Long Island that could entail a long drive -- many adult children find themselves doing some caregiving chores for their parents or other relatives from a distance. Even those who live close to their loved ones may need to do long-distance caregiving because of a summer vacation or a hectic schedule.

The National Institute on Aging is offering a 48-page booklet that can help. "So Far Away: Twenty Questions and Answers About Long-Distance Caregiving" offers strategies that can make your task a little easier.
