We Can Read Between the Lines

What She Does: Dr. Marion Somers, who pens the syndicated column, "Ask Doctor Marion," believes we're on the verge of an "elder care tsunami.: She launched Dr. M Media to provide practical tools, solutions, and advice to those struggling to care for our aging population.

 

"My gift is helping to heal the emotional pain that people so often go through with caregiving, and the frustration of not knowing what to do or where to turn for help," she said. She's written, "Elder Care Made Easier: Doctor Marion's 10 Steps to Help You Care for an Aging Loved One," and developed two iPhone apps, Elder 411 and Elder 911.

 

Why Older Is Better: "As an older person, you also know how to listen. And I don't mean just the words that come out of someone's mouth--you learn to listen to what's not being said as much as what is. Sometimes, the answer lies in the silences--in the body language and tone of what they're saying, and less in the words."
