Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) October 5, 2007 -- RetirementHomes.com (www.RetirementHomes.com), the highest-trafficked retirement-based directory on the internet, is co-sponsoring the current 16 city tour of Marion Somers, PhD. Popularly known as Doctor MarionŽ, the 67-year-old great-grandmother & geriatric care manager is crossing the southern U.S. on a Greyhound bus to meet with local communities, leaders, and the media. Other notable sponsors of the tour are BoomerTowne.com, Jitterbug, and QuietCareŠ.
The tour was announced in New York City on September 21, 2007. Leading elder care expert Doctor MarionŽ (www.doctormarion.com) is the author of "Elder Care Made Easier." Doctor Marion's second national bus tour this year will raise awareness in 16 cities and offer advice about the elder care issues facing Baby Boomers and other caregivers.
At 67, Doctor Marion has acquired over 35 years of experience as a geriatric care manager and elder care authority. On Monday, September 24, she climbed aboard her converted 1966 Greyhound bus in New York City to tour 16 cities in the southern U.S. in seven-weeks. The journey began in Baltimore and will finish in Los Angeles, CA on November 10.
RetirementHomes.com features Doctor Marion as a major online contributor providing perceptive articles for seniors and their families on nutrition, creativity, adapted equipment, travel tips, caregiving advice, and spirituality. The prolific elder care writer will continue in her role as expert columnist with RetirementHomes.com.
With the sponsorship of RetirementHomes.com, BoomerTowne.com, Jitterbug, and QuietCareŠ, Doctor Marion seeks to raise awareness about elder care and caregiving resources, and to provide sensible advise and appreciation for the millions of Americans caring for aging parents and loved ones. This past summer, her previous tour took her from Los Angeles, CA to Washington, DC where she met with residents, community leaders, political officials, and corporate organizations to discuss the upcoming elder care tidal wave.
This upcoming tour includes one-on-one meetings, public talks, and media interviews in the following cities: Baltimore, MD, Washington, D.C., Richmond, VA, Raleigh, NC, Atlanta, GA, Sarasota, FL, Tampa, FL, Tallahassee, FL, Mobile, AL, New Orleans, LA, Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX, Dallas, TX, Santa Fe, NM, Albuquerque, NM, and Los Angeles, CA.
Along the tour, Doctor Marion is also inaugurating a countrywide survey about the state of elder care in America to discover the most pressing issues caregivers face today. This is a critical concern heading into an election year. The results from each city will be made available on Doctor Marion's blog and website.
