NCC18 Focus Groups

Denise
Thank you so much for joining us at our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference, which happens Nov. 8-11 in Chicago at the Chicago Marriott O”Hare, 8535 W. Higgins.

We’re pleased to offer an opportunity for you to share your experiences through focus groups which we will hold at the conference. Please feel free to sign up for the following focus groups that best meet your experiences:

Livpact


Livpact has developed an online platform designed to help caregivers better manage their caregiving tasks, coordinate care and services, aggregate medical records, and reclaim time for themselves. Livpact recognizes that technology doesn't solve all caregiving challenges, but they are working hard to create technology that caregivers can really use in their day-to-day lives. Your feedback will help ensure these tools meet the needs of caregivers like you. Sign-up for a focus group during the National Caregiving Conference and receive free access to the online platform for 3 months and a $25 gift card for participating.

Livpact focus groups dates and times:

  • Friday, Nov. 9: 7:30 a.m. to 8:20 a.m. in Chicago Ballroom E

  • Saturday, Nov. 10: 7 a.m. to 7:50 a.m. in Chicago Ballroom E


Needed: 20 participants per session

Working and Caregiving


Balancing caregiving responsibilities and employee responsibilities can be challenging. We know that being supported as a caregiver is important, but we do not understand if/how support from the workplace helps. Help us understand your experience with support from the workplace. We want to learn about what helped you, what support you wish you had, etc. We will be asking you to fill out a short 5- 10 minute survey and have a 30-40 minute group discussion about support in the workplace. We will not ask you to reveal your personal information for the survey or interview. Everything is confidential and voluntary. We are looking for caregivers of an adult over the age of 60 and working outside the home. You can also join if you were working and caregiving within the last year. You will receive $20 for participating in the research study.
