"I thought I knew Jacqueline until I read her book. Wow, what a story!" —Regis Philbin

"Jacqueline's story and style of writing will surely grab a large readership." —Hugh Downs
First time author, Jacqueline Marcell, barely survived as a caregiver to her (once-adoring) challenging elderly father and sweet but ailing mother, both with the subtle beginning of Alzheimer’s which went undiagnosed for over a year. But after fighting through the medical system and depleting her parents’ life savings and much of her own, she finally figured everything out medically, behaviorally, socially, legally, financially, and emotionally.
Passion to save others (especially from getting so frustrated they commit elder abuse) compelled Marcell to write "Elder Rage" (with LOL humor to make a tough subject palatable), launch the popular "Coping with Caregiving" Internet radio show to help caregivers worldwide - interviewing 1500+ healthcare professionals, and to become an international speaker on Caregiving, Eldercare and Alzheimer's. She has spoken at hundreds of events including the California Governor’s Conference, National Security Agency (closed-circuit to 36,000 worldwide), National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and Florida House of Representatives.
Marcell has been featured in key media including TODAY, CNN, PBS Alzheimer’s Documentary, AARP Bulletin cover story, Woman’s Day, Prevention, and hundreds of radio/television interviews. The National Adult Day Services Association bestowed their Media Award - and the National Association of Women Business Owners bestowed ‘Advocate of the Year’ at their Remarkable Women Awards.
