|Pressemitteilung von: Impressive Press|
(openPR) - Jacqueline Marcell, author of the bestselling book, ELDER RAGE, interviewed four outstanding healthcare professionals on the popular COPING WITH CAREGIVING Internet radio program on Saturday, August 27th. The archive is available for free worldwide listening-on-demand at the website. |
1: Long-Term Care Insurance - Gary Katelman, President, LTC Benefits Group:
Gary’s company specializes in worksite, association, and individual long term care insurance, and is a member of the National LTC Network, and affiliated with Gelbwaks Executive Marketing Corp. Gary is a member of The Society of Actuaries and a Board Member for the American Association of Long-Term Care Insurance.
2: Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiving - Dr. Eric Pfeiffer, Author, ‘The Art of Caregiving in Alzheimer’s Disease’:
Dr. Pfeiffer is a nationally recognized expert with over 30 years of experience who shares his vast knowledge in his step-by-step book, which covers everything from the first recognition of Alzheimer’s symptoms, all the way through each stage, to nursing home placement and the resumption of life after caregiving ends.
3: Lewy Body Dementia: Difference from Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s – Dr. James Leverenz, Chair, LBDA Scientific Advisory Council:
Dr. Leverenz is Director of Clinical Research for Pacific Northwest Udall Center, investigator in the University of WA Alzheimer's Research Center, and investigator in Veteran’s Administration-based Parkinson's Disease Research, Education and Clinical Center. He is Professor of Neurology, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at University of WA School of Medicine.
4: Retirement & Challenging Retirees – Phil Saylor, Author, ‘Retire To – Not From’:
Phil has been self employed for 40 years, and noticed those who work in structured environments are often not ready to be on their own in retirement. He recommends treating retirement like starting a business, whether you have the money or not. His book examines changing demographics and explores the question everyone faces, what now?
Jacqueline Marcell was so compelled being the sole caregiver to her (once-adoring) challenging elderly father and sweet but ailing mother (both with Alzheimer’s which went undiagnosed for over a year), that once she figured everything out medically, behaviorally, socially, legally, financially and emotionally — she gave up her stalled career as a television executive to become an author, radio host, speaker, and advocate for Alzheimer’s and eldercare awareness and reform.
Passion to save others from a similar experience (especially from getting so frustrated they commit elder abuse), resulted in her bestselling book, written with humor to make a tough subject palatable, ‘ELDER RAGE, or Take My Father… Please! How to Survive Caring for Aging Parents’. A Book-of-the-Month Club selection, ELDER RAGE, has received 300+ 5-Star Amazon reviews and over 50 endorsements including Johns Hopkins Memory Clinic, Duke University Center for Aging, Dr. Rudy Tanzi/Harvard Medical School, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, Hugh Downs and Regis Philbin. The Addendum by renowned neurologist, Dr. Rodman Shankle MD, helped make it required reading at numerous universities for courses in geriatric assessment and management. It is also being considered for a film.
Marcell’s media includes TODAY, CNN, PBS Alzheimer’s Documentary, NPR, AARP Bulletin cover story, Woman’s Day and Prevention. She is also an international speaker, presenting at hundreds of events including the California Governor’s Conference for Women, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Alzheimer's Association, Area Agencies on Aging, National Security Agency, and Florida House of Representatives.
