Dr. David Samadi, robotic prostatectomy specialist, shares tips for caring for elderly parents long distance. Seniorcare, or eldercare, can be particularly challenging for those who have to manage care remotely. Dr. Samadi urges adult children to build relationships with their parents team of doctors and care providers, and communicate regularly through visits, texts, and emails. He suggests focusing on 4 F's - Fall prevention (making walking and wheelchair space safe), Food safety (in meal preparation and balanced meals), Fridge (as the perfect place to keep a list of all medications), and Family (discussing care level and plans for prolonged care). Taking care of yourself and managing stress is also key.

Testimonials
Walter K., USA

I learned I had prostrate cancer in late May 2010. I am 67 years old, diabetic, and had both TURP surgery and hernia surgery in the past. Being a Jehovah's Witness I was very concerned about the blood issue. Since conventional prostrate surgery is very bloody, it was not an option.

This is not a paid endorsement, even though it’s going to sound like one. This is just a true account of my experiences with the amazing Dr. David B. Samadi and his incredible staff in the time leading up to and following my recent robotic prostate removal surgery.

"I was discharged from the hospital within 24 hours of being admitted and had my catheter removed in less than a week. I've had no obvious sign of blood loss since the surgery and no complications. Five days following the surgery, my wife and I were dancing at a wedding!"
