WELCOME to Caring From a Distance (CFAD)—an organization for long-distance caregivers.

Are you one of the 6.9 million Americans struggling to care for an aging parent or other loved one who lives in a far-away location? If you are, we are here to help.

Whether you live across the world or an hour away, you and your family face special challenges. Long-term care is costly. What benefits are available? Where can you educate and inform yourself to navigate a complex field, search for available assistance and access the local resources they require? How can you, family and friends coordinate and communicate in an emergency? What can you do to support their care when you visit? CFAD is here to help:
