This week’s spotlight is on Jacqueline Marcell who is an author, radio host, caregiver advocate, and Alzheimer’s speaker. Her personal story as caregiver to a challenging elderly father and sweet ailing mother, both with Alzheimer’s which went undiagnosed—and Jacqueline’s subsequent challenges as a breast cancer survivor, makes her a remarkable figure to watch and admire in the realm of caregiving and elder care.
Jacqueline’s book, Elder Rage: How To Survive Caring For Aging Parents, is a critically acclaimed non-fiction novel/self help book about Jacqueline’s family struggles caring for parents who are aging with disease. Elder Rage was chosen as a Book of the Month Club selection (a caregiving first) and has garnered over 50 professional endorsements, and hundreds of positive reviews. You may purchase Jacqueline’s book, Elder Rage, on Amazon.com: Elder Rage, or Take Father Please: How To Survive Caring For Aging Parents. Or, you may also purchase a signed copy directly from her website order form.
Besides authoring her book, Jacqueline also regularly hosts the COPING WITH CAREGIVING radio show, where she interviews guests on topics such as dealing with disease, stress, dementia, psychology, grief and coping. Over nine years, she has interviewed over 1500 guests on her radio show.
When Jacqueline is not hosting her radio show, she is also an International Speaker (CEU/CMEs), having presented at hundreds of events including the California Governor’s Conference, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, National Security Agency, and Florida House of Representatives. Jacqueline speaks about a range of subjects including self-publishing, overcoming adversity, inspiration, and most importantly, Alzheimer’s and elder care.
