At this year’s Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference, we want you to return home with new insights, purpose and knowledge. Our NCC19 agenda includes sessions that reflect our commitment to delivering a difference for you and to you.

We also want you to see yourself in a new light.

We’re creating two opportunities for you to step into the spotlight with our Caregiving Choir and Caregiving Comedy Club. Deborah Todd, who cares for her dad and operates her own business, Thought Shaker Thursday, will lead our choir and bring out your funny in our comedy club.

If you plan on attending our conference, consider joining our Caregiving Choir. You can practice before joining us in Chicago and then on Friday, November 8, at 5 p.m. at the conference. (Check our NCC19 conference app for location.) Deborah and I met for a dry run; you can watch our video at the bottom of the post. You also can receive updates about our choir by registering via the form at the bottom of the post.

The choir will sing:

You’ve Got a Friend in Me

  • 1st verse women
  • 2nd verse men
  • All other parts will be in unison


  • Mostly in unison
  • All the short happy…happy…happy…happy…happy will be women only (background).


If you’d like to join our choir, complete the form, below. You’ll perform live on Saturday during our lunch break.

If you’d like to join the comedy club, plan on attending Deborah’s conference session on Friday, November 8. You’ll then perform live on Saturday during our lunch break.

About Denise

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
