Synopsis:

Dr. Marion travels across the US, visiting families who are burdened by the difficulty of taking care of an elderly loved one, providing advice and guidance to improve their lifestyle. The show is an entertaining, educational and heartfelt look into real families and their struggles, conflicts and triumphs. Relying on her nearly 40 years of experience, Dr. Marion helps these families work through their discord and physical barriers.

With the number of seniors about to grow at an unprecedented rate, families across America will turn to expert advice and real-world situations.
