How can I help when I live so far away? What can I do to support my loved one who is chronically ill from long distance? These are some of the common questions we hear from family members or friends of those who are chronically ill. We are posting this question here in hopes that those with experience will answer below in the comment section. Please let us know if you are a caregiver of a chronically ill patient or if you are the patient and have some ideas of what will help you. Thank you!
