Trade support for sick extended family members in far off cities

When loved ones get sick in far off cities, people face the challenge of uprooting their life to help. Would it be possible to create a "couchsurfing" like concept where people can volunteer their time/ assistance in their home city to help out local strangers, while building up credit to get help, if their far off loved ones ever need it? With technology you could still have a live video of the medical visit with the confidence that your loved one has helped with transportation, scheduling and follow up.

Couchsurfing has demonstrated the ability to trust strangers and make valuable trades.
