Join Dannelle for her panel discussion during our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Can We Really Find Our Best Selves through Self Care? on Saturday at 4 p.m.
As caregivers by definition we experience both honor and pain in supporting a loved one through decline and ultimate death. The explosion of conflicting emotions can be overwhelming and at the same time fulfilling. How do we reconcile complexity like this in our caregiving role? There is no "one size fits all self care," given the care journey spans a broad continuum of emotion and reaction: from detection, to diagnosis, through early-mid-late stage illness, loss, grief, understanding and ultimate acceptance. Our very diverse panel, which includes Danelle, Lillie Fuller, Lisa B Capp and Penny Patnaude, will present options focused on enabling caregivers across the continuum of care through music, storytelling, meditation and relaxation. We'll take a journey together through perpetual presence and evolution in our caregiving role. How's that sound as a way to close your second day of NCC18 attendance? Some attendees will leave Chicago as winners of awesome Caregiving Baskets, goodies to aid in your role as a full or part time caregiver when you return to your loved ones after the conference.
