Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference
November 7, 2019 - November 10, 2019$48 – $359
Will you join us for our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference?
Our conference, which will take place November 7 through 10 at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, 8535 W. Higgins, will bring together those who currently care for a family member and those who previously cared for a family member. In addition, professionals who work with family caregivers and those interested in family caregiver issues will join us. Health care professionals can earn as many as 23 CEUs for attending all four days.
“It was an amazing experience to connect with warm, compassionate caregivers and to hear their stories,” says an attendee of our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference. “It was unlike any conference I have ever attended.”
Our conference is about what caregiving is like for us. The majority of our sessions and panel discussions will be led by current and former family caregivers. We will gather to talk honestly about our experiences and to share solutions and ideas to make it better. An attendee to our third conference described her experience this way: “I felt welcomed! Appreciated! Most exhausting week/weekend that I loved!!
Our conference is a one-of-a-kind event — it’s the only conference which features family caregivers and former family caregivers as presenters and panelists. We’re the experts in our caregiving experiences which is why we are the presenters. “This was a phenomenal conference,” says an attendee of last year’s conference. “All of the speakers were informative and engaged. I learned a lot and connected with many wonderful caregivers. Everything was very well organized.”
This year’s conference theme, Our Amazing Difference, puts our great work in the spotlight. We’ll share about the difference we make to our carees, our families, our workplaces, our communities, our faith-based organizations, our health care system and each other.
