A recognized visionary and thought leader in her field, Dr. Marion (Marion Somers, PhD) has over 40 years of experience as a geriatric care manager, caregiver, author, speaker, and teacher of all things elder care. Next week, Dr. Marion kicks off a bus tour, crisscrossing the country to talk with seniors and caregivers. Her advice: it's never too soon to start planning for long-term care needs and costs. As part of the campaign, Dr. Marion and 3in4 Need More are launching a nationwide "Get Your Life Back" contest to find those struggling to care for their aging loved ones. The winner will receive an ultimate caregiver makeover valued at $50,000 – including a week's worth of pampering and relaxation, an in-home safety assessment and overhaul, one-on-one coaching, and high-tech solutions to support a range of caregiving needs.
