How To Survive
Caring For Aging Parents

by Jacqueline Marcell


Elder Rage...

reads like a fascinating novel that keeps the reader spellbound and amused by the true revealing portrait of an intriguing cast of characters. As the unbelievable saga unfolds like a never-ending soap opera, Jacqueline calls on her long career as an executive in the television industry to draw humorous comparisons to "show business." She summarizes her challenging circumstances with famous television and movie quotes and always has an appropriate theme song which helps her hold onto her sanity. Filled with laughter and tears, this riveting story puts real faces and human heart into one of the most difficult situations that so many Baby Boomers are unfortunately finding themselves faced with.

Elder Rage...

will help caregivers in the thick of it, as well as those who are anxiously anticipating the overwhelming responsibility befalling them. Interwoven into the amazing journey is a wealth of valuable and practical caregiving information that Jacqueline masters along the way. Anyone managing a difficult elder will surely be comforted as they read about the extreme case of elder rage that she survived. Unexpected, tortured emotions will be validated and understood as part of the process of caring for an elderly loved one.

Jacqueline is a college graduate who taught at major universities, ran companies, but says, "This lesson was, by far, the biggest challenge of my life. The mistakes I made, and the advice I give, will help caregivers cope with the countless frustrations of how to handle one of the hardest times of their lives, as they raise their rebellious parents through their "not-so" golden years, helping them to make the difficult transition from adulthood back to their childhoods again."

"I thought I knew Jacqueline until I read her book. Wow, what a story! If you're caring for an elder, you won't believe how much this book
will help you."
