  • Laughter and Tears in the Caregiving Years


Balanced Living | Education | Healthcare | Personal Development | Stress Management


Jacqueline Marcell is the devoted daughter in the riveting true story, Elder Rage, or Take My Father... Please! How To Survive Caring for Aging Parents. A former college professor and television executive, she gave up her life for a year to take care of her elderly parents. After fighting through an unsympathetic medical system and enduring her father's rages, her ingenuity and loving persistence turned around a seemingly impossible situation with her difficult father, and changed a life-altering family tragedy into a book that is having a broad appeal, considering that 50 million Americans struggle to provide care for aging family members and friends.

Now an advocate for eldercare awareness and reform, Ms. Marcell hosts her own radio program, Coping with Caregiving. She has appeared on more than 100 radio and television programs, including CNN, NBC, NPR, Good Morning America, Lifestyle Magazine, and Iyanla. AARP's Bulletin, with a circulation of 22 million, featured her on their cover, and she has appeared in articles in the Los Angeles Times, the San Diego Union Tribune, Kaiser Permanente Journal, Aging Today, Contemporary Long-Term Care Magazine, The Institute of Gerontology, Modern Healthcare Magazine, Prevention Magazine, The Gerontologist, The Journal of Longevity, and Woman's Day. Her book has received multiple endorsements from celebrities, medical professionals, and associations across the country.

Using humor to captivate her audience, Jacqueline Marcell educates families and professionals on how to make caregiving more manageable, both medically and behaviorally. She spoke at the California Governor's Conference for Women, lecturing with First Lady Sharon Davis. She has presented for the Alzheimer's Association, Hospice, Epilepsy Foundation, Young Presidents Organization, The American Society on Aging, and at numerous conferences. Her topics include preventative measures, long-term care insurance, elder-proofing the home, finding the right doctors and caregivers, adult day care, residence options, modifying difficult behaviors, support groups and resources, and coping with the stress of watching a loved one decline.

For Ms. Marcell, the experience of caring for her elderly parents, both with Alzheimer's that was not properly diagnosed for over a year, was heart wrenching. She gave up a 15-year career as a television executive to become an advocate for eldercare awareness and reform. In the beginning, her once-adoring father turned verbally and physically abusive towards her, and she was heartbroken. What then was astonishing was that every time she took him to a doctor, her father could act completely normal. It was an unbelievable nightmare for over a year, as she endured her father's wrath while fighting through an unsympathetic medical system. With sheer determination she finally solved the endless crisis, medically and behaviorally.

Furious that she was needlessly put through so much misery, Jacqueline Marcell felt compelled to write her book and launch a radio program to help caregivers, and has delivered over one hundred keynotes speeches. Having taught college in her "first life," she now weaves poignant and humorous anecdotes about her challenging father amid facts and statistics, turning tough subjects into an 'edu-taining' event. She is also a recent breast cancer survivor, and her triumph over eighteen-months of complications from treatments and five surgeries makes a huge impact on people, reminding them of the need to closely monitor their own health. She also speaks about how to embrace gratitude and humor to remain positive and motivated through life's challenges.
