Publisher's Summary

Elder Rage is a Book-on-the-Month Club selection (a caregiving book first), receiving 500+ 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.

Worthwhile to listen to.

The first part was quite depressing as it was so similar to what I've been through. The second part summarized how to manage what was encountered in the first part. The narrator presented the book very vividly There were some 'foul language', but it makes the book more realistic.

thank goodness I (we're) not alone...

I found this book extremely useful because it helps me understand what we're going through with my parents... it's frustrating though because she has a lot more money than i do and we don't have long-term care insurance..we simply can't afford it.
