First time author and self-publisher, Jacqueline Marcell, barely survived as a caregiver to her (once-adoring)
Passion to save others (especially from getting so frustrated they commit elder abuse) compelled Marcell to write her first book (written with humor to make a tough subject palatable), launch the popular ‘Coping with Caregiving’ Internet radio show to help caregivers worldwide, and become an international speaker on Alzheimer's and eldercare awareness and reform.
Marcell has been featured in key media including TODAY, CNN, PBS Alzheimer’s Documentary, AARP Bulletin cover story, Woman’s Day, Prevention, and interviewed on hundreds of radio and television programs. She has also spoken at hundreds of events including the California Governor’s Conference, National Security Agency (closed-circuit to 36,000 worldwide), National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and Florida House of Representatives.
