AN AWARD-WINNING, NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED GERIATRIC CARE MANAGER
During the past three decades, Marion Somers, Ph.D., (Doctor Marion) has provided care for more than 2,000 elderly clients while she owned and operated a thriving Geriatric Care Management practice. It is now Dr. Marion’s goal to help caregivers everywhere by providing valuable insights and information in her book and on this web site.
While others might avoid elder care issues at every turn, Dr. Marion has made caring for the elderly her life’s work. She loves her work and it shows. Dr. Marion doesn’t focus on the grey hair or wrinkles of the elderly. Instead, she’s inspired by the beauty of their life experience. “If an individual has lived to be 90 years old, he must have some real skills and smarts to get his needs met in life. It’s vital we tap into the wisdom, strength, and life strategies of the elderly before they pass on.”
Dr. Marion knows that caregivers feel scared, angry, guilty, frustrated, overworked, and under-appreciated, but she is here to hold their hand through these demanding times. She passes on her knowledge and practical advice in a way that all caregivers can understand. “There are many common issues that caregivers face when dealing with the elderly. The language or the culture may be different, the values or the color of skin may be different, but many issues are universal, and it’s my goal to make a positive impact,” says Dr. Marion.
