More than 40 million individuals care for a family member in the United States. And, it's not easy. Family caregivers rate their stress as 4.16 on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the most stressed. Family caregivers need products and services that help. They need answers.

Be part of the solution. Join us as a sponsor or exhibitor at the Second Annual National Caregiving Conference. The team from Lilly for Better Health is pictured on your right at their exhibit space at our First Annual National Caregiving Conference.

Consider the successes of our 2016 conference, our inaugural event:

  • Our Title Sponsor committed to our 2017 conference before our 2016 conference concluded.

  • Richard Lui, MSNBC weekend anchor, kicked off our conference with a keynote to remember. Because of the importance of our conference, he flew in from New York City, arriving shortly before his Saturday morning keynote and then returned immediately after to New York City to prepare for his afternoon broadcast.

  • Grammy-award winner Patti Austin created a special tribute, Lean on Me, to salute all family caregivers.

  • Panelists and presenters included Amy Goyer, AARP's caregiving expert.


“The event is so necessary – we are all caring for someone at most times in our lives. I can’t wait to tell my family, friends and co-workers about this event. I would love to become involved with the organization of future events.” ~ Celeste Duignan

“It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of this conference. The energy, love and support was a blessing. A true drink of water for my parched soul. Thank you!” ~ Sibyl M. Yau

“I believe that the information given at this conference is something that every caregiver should have. If I had had this information sooner in my caregiving experience, (I) would have been much, much better from the beginning.”~ Diane Glittenberg

“First and foremost I need the break. It was wonderful to rub shoulders and hear the stories of others and realize I am not alone on the caregiver journey. I came empty and I am leaving refreshed, renewed and overflowing. Thank you!” ~ Joan Koch

Our Second Annual National Caregiving Conference will bring together family caregivers, former family caregivers and individuals who work with family caregivers. The goal of our conference is to:

  • connect attendees with support and solutions;

  • empower attendees with insights and information;

  • and entertain attendees with engaging and enlightening presentations.


This year's conference theme is Our Boldest Hours: Before. During. After.

Our conference theme will remind us of our boldest hours before, during and after our caregiving experience. Our theme also challenges us to be bold before we gather in November, while we gather during our conference, and then after our conference ends. We’ll announce contests which challenge family caregivers and former family caregivers to be bold over the next few months. Contest winners will receive cash prizes to help offset the costs of attending our conference.

New to this year's conference includes:

  • A full two-day agenda

  • Exhibitor hours on Friday and Saturday

  • A conference app available to both in-person and virtual attendees

  • Additional visibility opportunities during our Day of Service which happens on November 12 at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago


Our conference will take place at Chicago Marriott O'Hare, 8535 West Higgins Road., Chicago. We hope to have 300 individuals attend our conference in person and another 200 watch the conference virtually.
