Overview
Jacqueline Marcell is the devoted daughter in the riveting true story Elder Rage. A former college professor and television executive, she puts her life on hold for a year to care for her elderly parents. Her ingenuity and loving persistence finally turn around a seemingly impossible situation with her difficult father, and changes a life-altering family tragedy into a book that's having a broad appeal, as 25 million American's struggle to provide care for aging family members. Written with a humorous style that entertains and educates, she gives practical advice and real hope that there can still be a good life after a diagnosis of dementia, if it's properly managed medically and behaviorally. Includes 70 pages of self-help and resources, and an addendum by dementia specialist, Dr. Rodman Shankle, "A Physicians Guide to Treating Dementia."
