Your NCC19 Budget

Two of our NCC18 attendees connecting.

We’d love for you to join us November 7-10 in Chicago for the Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference. Our conference will take place at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare, 8535 W. Higgins in Chicago.

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.

We want you to experience something different during our conference so that you leave feeling different.
