Now Dyke is speaking frequently to an ever growing number of families with aging and elderly parents who need to know how to assess, decide, prepare and cope with the most challenging part of every family's role reversals--children caring for their parents.
Dyke points out that whether the family with aging and elderly parents decides to take their parents into their own home or help them move into a rest home or assisted living, it is best to start early before they are pressed to a quick decision by an accident, illness or financial stress.
In order to make the transition as smooth as possible, Dyke's audiences are advised to study and consider the following:
1. Family Cooperation/
3. Head of Household
10. Asset and Income Allocations/
12. Home Safety.
Dyke attests that he enjoys making presentations to clubs, associations and groups, in general. Last month his talk was to the Austin, Texas Chapter of PAHCOM, Professional Association of Health Care Office Managers, consisting primarily of the office managers of practicing physicians.
