Jacqueline Marcell

Jacqueline Marcell was a television executive. She barely survived as family caregiver for her challenging father and sweet mother, both with Alzheimer's undiagnosed for over a year. The experience led her to write 'Elder Rage', www.ElderRage.com, a Book-of-the-Month Club selection receiving over 450 5-Star Amazon reviews. It’s required reading at numerous universities, and considered for a film. She’s received 'Advocate of the Year' from the National Association of Women Business Owners at their Remarkable Women Awards. She’s an international speaker who’s 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. She 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.
