Radio Show #301 – Mary Flahive-Dickson,
Chief Operating Officer of Golden Years
Home Health Care

In this time of a global pandemic, the challenge of taking care of our seniors in their own homes is a formidable one.

Mary Flahive-Dickson, the Chief Operating Officer at Golden Years Home Care Services, discusses the balance between providing care to those in need in their homes, and keeping them reassured that their risk is low.

Seniors may feel a degree of social isolation to begin with, and in this program, Mary acknowledges how needs for assistance from health care workers may exacerbate their existing apprehensions.

Ms. Flahive-Dickson is also an Adjunct Professor at Bay Path University, with over 20 years of substantiated success in profitable healthcare development and creation, growth and operations, as well as a Subject Matter Expert, writing healthcare curriculum for higher education.
