Dyke Publishing Company was formed for the sole purpose of helping others assess, decide, prepare and cope with eldercare options as well as providing good eldercare in their home for elderly parents or other loved ones.
As a part of this effort both old and new research for eldercare information and products was marshaled and made the content of highly organized databases at DykePublishing.com. The databases for eldercare information and products are for the exclusive use of the purchasers of Mama Moves In.
The databases are updated routinely and work in conjunction with the search engines to provide current internet data about eldercare information and products that is always current.
The database services are designed to save eldercare providers time and to give them the current data they need for both information and products quickly and easily from their computer. As it has been said, “With just a few clicks of your mouse you get what you need instantly.” And there are over 70,000,000 Baby Boomers with millions of elderly parents who will need eldercare, so the aggregate time saved should be considerable.
My fervent hope is that other children of aging and elderly parents have the information they need to have good insights and to make good decisions about eldercare in their home without the steep and challenging learning curve I experienced.
Dyke Publishing Company’s website was established for three reasons:
- To make Mama Moves In and ResearchPro available to as many prospective and existing eldercare givers as possible,
- To provide a website where eldercare givers can get the latest news and information about eldercare,
- To provide a website where eldercare givers can communicate with each other anonymously about any and all of the eldercare issues confronting them.
