Nationally Recognized Geriatric Care Manager Brings More Than 35 Years of Experience to AGIS Website for Eldercare and Family Caregiver Support

SAN RAMON, CA - AGIS, the comprehensive resource and database of decision tools for people to identify needed eldercare services and financial solutions, announced today its partnership with eldercare guru and author Doctor Marion Somers, PhD. Doctor Marion has three decades of experience providing support to the elderly and their caregivers. She will be sharing her expertise with AGIS as the site continues expanding its rapidly growing database of eldercare information. Doctor Marion will contribute hundreds of "Ask Doctor Marion" articles giving advice on common caregiving concerns, as well as provide a library of interactive audio and video tips on a range of eldercare topics. The AGIS eldercare portal serves to improve the quality of life for seniors and their families through a combination of educational resources and locally available support services. The site provides an extensive information resource along with a user-based community that allows caregivers, the elderly and their family members to share their experiences with each other. The AGIS community offers more relevant advice, consistent updates and constantly changing content to make the site a continuing source of pertinent material.

"Doctor Marion has the vast experience and deep-seated knowledge in caregiving to significantly enhance our existing community network at AGIS," stated AGIS founder and CEO Kevin Sypniewski. "This is a wonderful opportunity to connect her years of eldercare experience with family caregivers and we are extremely excited to have her on board. Her advice and guidance will expand our existing support base and we look forward to a long lasting relationship."

"AGIS is revolutionizing the eldercare process by providing a community platform where parents and children alike can find the support they need during an often difficult decision making process," said Doctor Marion. "I know first-hand how difficult it is for caregivers to find resources, which is exactly why I launched my book and web site. I'm thrilled to join the expert team at AGIS.com to further expand the comprehensive resources that are available in eldercare today."

Doctor Marion is one of the industry's foremost authorities on eldercare topics, trends and solutions. During her extensive career as a geriatric care manager, professor, counselor and caregiver to thousands, Doctor Marion has delivered multiple seminars and provided valuable commentary on eldercare to The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and more. She is also published author of "Elder Care Made Easier: Doctor Marion's 10 Steps to Help You Care for an Aging Loved One," a simple guide that outlines in basic terms how to act as a caregiver to elderly loved ones. Doctor Marion also offers a web site with additional resources, www.doctormarion.com.
