Politicians

NEW YORK, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Leading elder care expert Doctor Marion(R) (http://www.doctormarion.com), author of "Elder Care Made Easier," today kicked off her second national bus tour this year to raise awareness and offer advice for the elder care issues currently facing Baby Boomers and other caregivers across the country. Doctor Marion is a 67-year-old great-grandmother with over 35 years of experience as a geriatric care manager and elder care expert. Today, she will climb aboard her converted 1966 Greyhound bus in New York City, and go on to visit 15 cities in the southern U.S. over a seven-week period. The tour will end in Albuquerque, NM in November. Sponsors include BoomerTowne.com, Jitterbug, QuietCare(C), and RetirementHomes.com.

Doctor Marion's goal is to raise awareness about elder care and caregiving resources, and to offer practical tips and insight to the millions of Americans caring for aging parents and loved ones. Her previous tour took her from Los Angeles, CA to Washington, DC this past summer, where she met with residents, community leaders, political officials, and corporate organizations to discuss the "elder care tsunami" we are facing. This upcoming tour includes one-on-one meetings, public talks, and media interviews about the topic 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; and Albuquerque, NM.

Along the tour, Doctor Marion is also launching a nationwide poll about the state of elder care in America to discover the most pressing elder care 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 web site.
