Call in to speak with the host
JACQUELINE MARCELL barely survived as a caregiver to her challenging father and sweet mother, both with Alzheimer's which went undiagnosed for over a year. The experience compelled her to write 'Elder Rage', a Book-of-the-Month Club selection receiving more than 470 5-star Amazon reviews, is required reading at numerous universities, and considered for a film. Over 50 prestigious endorsements include Regis Philbin, Leeza Gibbons, 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 is also an international speaker, presenting at hundreds of events including for the California Governor’s Conference, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, National Security Agency, and Florida House of Representatives. She’s also been featured on the TODAY SHOW, CNN, a PBS Alzheimer’s Documentary, and was a cover story of the AARP BULLETIN.
Jacqueline stresses the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s and says there can still be a good life for everyone in the family, if dementia is properly managed medically, behaviorally, socially, legally, financially and emotionally. She will be discussing these issues with Kate. You may learn more about her at her website: www.ElderRage.com.
