remote care

A graveyard, a school, and the sea.


My father's leg still hurts a little, but it's getting better little by little. Now he can walk normally although he can't walk for a long distance as before.

As you may know, I call my parents everyday.
After I finish talking, I then text my brother with this information.

Yesterday, when I was talking with my mother, I knew that my parents had contracted one thing. According to her, a female clerk who my parents knew visited their house, and she asked them to contract one thing. Especially, my father likes helping people very much, and he doesn't like refusing. It was on August 31. I bet the clerk had a monthly quota. It would be easier for her to make a contract with them. After I listened to my mother what it was in detail, I knew it was not a good deal. I got angry with my parents. I said to my mother that I would call the clerk and cancell the contract.

I then informed it to my brother on the phone. He said that he would call to cancell it. If it would be difficult, he would take a day off from his work and go there. He seemed to be more angry than me. However, I asked him to not scold them because I had already done.
My brother calmed down this morning. He then called to cancell it. The clerk wasn't in the office then, but her boss accepted it.

We were relieved to hear from my mother that the clerk visited theirs again to cancell the contract.

Whenever I call my parents, I decided to ask some questions as below.

1. Is anything wrong?
2. Don't contract anything by themselves.
3. Was anything broken?
4. What is your plan for today?
5. Who will visit? ( or Who visited yesterday?)
6. Did you take a bath last night?

Recently, my parents said that even taking a bath everyday is tiring.

Anyway, I don't know 'remote care' is the right words, but I realized that just calling can help parents even though their children live far away from them.

My father's leg still hurts a little, but it's getting better, little by little. Now, he can walk normally, although he can't walk so a long distance as before.

As you may know, I call my parents everyday.
After I finish talking, I then text my brother about our talk.

Yesterday, when I was talking with my mother, I found out that my parents had signed a service contract. According to her, a female clerk whom my parents knew, visited their house, and asked them to sign a contract through her. My father, especially, likes helping people very much, and he doesn't like to refuse requests. It was on August 31. I bet the clerk had a monthly quota to make. I also bet that this woman knew my parents would be easy targets to exploit. After I listened to my mother as to what the service was in detail, I knew that it was not a good deal. I got angry with my parents. I told my mother that I would call the clerk and cancel the contract.

I then informed my brother by phone. He said that he would also call to have the contract cancelled. He also said that if cancelling it by phone proved to be difficult, he would take a day off from work and go there himself. He seemed to be more angry about it than I was. However, I asked him to not scold them because I had already done so.
My brother calmed down this morning. He then called to cancel it. The clerk wasn't in the office then, but her boss accepted it.

We were relieved to hear from my mother that the clerk visited them again to cancel the contract.

Whenever I call my parents, I decided to ask them critical questions, and stress important points, such as the ones below:

1. Is anything wrong?
2. Don't sign contracts for anything by themselves.
3. Was anything broken?
4. What is your plan for today?
5. Who will visit? ( or who visited yesterday?)
6. Did you take a bath last night?

Recently, my parents said that even taking a bath everyday is tiring.

Anyway, I don't know if 'remote care' are the right words, but I realized that just calling can help parents, even though their children live far away from them.

Do you think that 'remote care' are proper words in this situation?


My Reply:

You are getting information, ensuring certain things are, or are not, happening, and you are applying remedies...remotely. So, yes, you could say it. Actually, I cannot think of anything better to use.
