JACQUELINE MARCELL was so compelled by caring for her elderly parents (both with early Alzheimer's which went undiagnosed for over a year), that once she figured everything out she gave up her career as a television executive to become an advocate for eldercare awareness and reform. Jacqueline is the devoted daughter in her bestselling book, Elder Rage, a Book-of-the-Month Club selection being considered for a film. Over 50 endorsements include: Hugh Downs, Regis Philbin, Johns Hopkins Memory Clinic, and the National Adult Day Services Association who honored Jacqueline with their Media Award. She also received “Advocate of the Year” from the National Association of Women Business Owners at their Remarkable Women Awards. JACQUELINE’S MISSIONS ARE TO: Encourage long-term care planning; Show healthcare professionals how they can better help families they work with; Empower caregivers with solutions and hope--and to put their own health first; Encourage funding for Alzheimer’s research and heighten early diagnosis awareness; Expose elder abuse and exploitation; Advocate for funding for Adult Day Care Services; Help improve eldercare laws. Her website is www.ElderRage.com. Jacquleine will dicuss the importance of EARLY diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s--and that there can still be a good life after a diagnosis of dementia, if it is properly balanced medically and behaviorally.
