Default Long distance children and Alzheimer's parents

This may have been asked before, but does anyone know of good resources for those of us who live far from our parents, and can not get home to see them as they are worsening into the later stages of Alzheimer's? My sister is shouldering the brunt of making arrangements for her care, etc., and my brother is there to visit her and help a a little, but I can't get home to see her due to finances and health reasons. I am not only looking for help knowing if there is anything I can do, but also in how to cope with being absent when needed by my family and while my mom is "disappearing." If I went home today she would not know me, and I might not know how to handle it.

Any resources will be appreciated. Thanks.

Debra
