Over 100 million people need to know what to do with aging parents and how to assess, decide, prepare and cope. Will it be our home or the rest home? These questions were not adequately answered until now. Mama Moves In and the Research Pro databases answer the questions, provide the information and give direction: How to assess, decide, prepare and cope. Life coaches now have available powerful tools to tap the huge niche of elder care coaching. Visit http://www.MamaMovesIn.com for more information about the book and the databases.
Is there a sufficient market to interest and support a life coach? Studies report that:
1. There are nearly 76,000,000 Baby Boomers out there and they started turning 65 January 1, 2011, at the rate of about 10,000 per day.
2. Those Baby Boomers have between 25,000,000 and 30,000,000 parents who are either in need of elder care or soon will be.
3. Those same Baby Boomers have between 30,000,000 and 40,000,000 children who will be taking care of them sooner or later.
4. The market is huge and will last indefinitely. Visit http://www.dykepublishing.com/
An important question is: Do life coaches need more business/clients?
To help life coaches develop new business, Dyke created an elder care package around which elder care coaching can be developed. It consists of:
1. A book, Mama Moves In, all about in-my-home elder care.
2. Two online, internet-resourced and maintained databases:
a. One for elder care information, and
b. One for elder care products.
The database topics are organized alphabetically and the Google search results ("hits") have been screened for content. In other words, the searches have been done already and those search results have been reviewed for content and authority and pared down to an appropriate number for each category.
Additionally, if a user wants to see more of the original hits on any of the hit lists, all hits are listed under the already-screened list compliments of Google.
The database tool includes a convenient way to manage desired listings for review.
Importantly, the book gives context to the database information and the databases provides utility to the book. The result is having an elder care package that is always current—it does not go out of date. So, coaches and their clients will have a resource that is always useable regardless of when purchased.
Armed with the real life information from the book as well as the always-current elder care information and products resource, a life coach can use his or her skills to coach elder care caregivers. The book contains many highlighted references to selections in the databases as well as 5 ½ years of in-my-home elder care experiences. Topics included are home safety, security, dealing with emotions, family involvement and help, the secondary caregiver, day-to-day routine, the practical, hints from professionals, the rewards of elder care and resources.
By direct reference to the book and the databases, analogy and employing his/her special coaching skills a coach can help elder care caregivers to successfully deal with the elder care challenges that are encountered every day.
Coaches have the perfect skill set for elder care coaching. Good coaches clarify goals , refine strategies, raise awareness , brainstorm, identify action plans, ask clarifying questions, offer fresh perspectives, identify responsibility, encourage proactive behavior, make specific suggestions, and develop client's confidence.
Dyke asserts, "Based on my 5 1/2 years of elder care experience a good elder care coach would have made all the difference in the world." The package can be purchased at http://www.dykepublishing.com/
