First I was talking about the toxic one. But then @cubiclebuddha brought up a few occasions with a positive outcome.

Of course, sometimes you'll encounter cases when a good developer stops delivering. Some troubles like his neighbors do apartment renovation and it's hard for him to work from home office.

When we're working remote, we might miss those things that are crucial for the well-being of our teammates. But I don't think that remote is some special case. Just talk to your colleagues as with your friends, observe their behavior, try to help. Help him with coworking space, send to the conference, or invite to your city to work together.
