Elder Rage is a Book-on-the-Month Club selection (a caregiving book first), receiving 350+ 5-Star Amazon reviews, is required reading at numerous universities for courses in geriatric assessment and management, and considered for a film. It is a riveting, often LOL true story about Jacqueline Marcell's trials and tribulations managing the care of her challenging elderly father and sweet ailing mother. After fighting through the medical system and depleting her parents' life savings and much of her own, Marcell solved her eldercare nightmare medically, behaviorally, legally, financially, and emotionally-and shows you how you can too.

Elder Rage answers difficult questions such as how to get obstinate elders to: discuss long-term care options, accept cleaning and caregiving help, see different doctors, have medical tests, give up driving, attend adult day care, take medication, sleep, bathe and eat properly, move to a new residence, etc. - and teaches you how to manage stress, siblings, healthcare professionals, guilt, and grief.

Elder Rage has received 50+ prestigious endorsements including: Hugh Downs, Regis Philbin, Ed Asner, Jacqueline Bisset, John Bradshaw, Phyllis Diller, Duke University Center for Aging, Ken Dychtwald, Leeza Gibbons, Dr. John Gray, Mark Victor Hansen, Julie Harris, Institute for Successful Aging, Johns Hopkins Memory Clinic, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Dr. Rudy Tanzi/Harvard Medical School, and the National Adult Day Services Association who bestowed their Media Award on Jacqueline for bringing attention to the value of adult day care.

    " Obviously self-published, riddled with grammatical errors and nonsensical soliloquies. However, the ending was VERY informative - if I could cut the last few chapters and hand them to anyone I know with an aging loved one, I would. "

    " A must read for those who are caring for elderly parents or have loved ones who suffer from memory loss, dementia. The author suddenly finds she must care for her aging parents and is ill prepared to do so. At the end of her story, the author shares her lessons and valuable to do lists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 1/24/2013

    " The book was a good read, though I found that the Hollywood references became tiresome in a hurry and wished she would have just told the story without them. I was looking for practical advice, and there was some good, actionable advice about elder care included. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shirley | 1/17/2013

    " Lot's of distracting song and book asides, which I found distracting. Having recently been going through many of the same issues I did find it interesting. I HATED the number of spelling and grammatical errors. "
