Respite Options So You Can Attend the National Caregiving Conference

Denise
Our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference will happen November 8th through November 11th at the Chicago Marriott O"Hare, 8535 W. Higgins in Chicago. We hope you will join us in Chicago or virtually. We will live broadcast both days for free.

We have options for you if you plan to join us and will bring your caree.

The Sheridan at Park Ridge


Day respite at The Sheridan at Park Ridge
Your caree attends activities at a local assisted living and memory care community. You can drop your caree off on your way to the conference or have your caree take the van from our conference hotel to the community. The community is a 10-minute drive from our conference hotel. Cost is $125 per day which includes activities, meals and nursing care as needed. An assessment, which can be completed in your home or at The Sheridan, is required. To reserve a spot for your caree or to schedule a tour, please call Fiona Forde Elkes at 224-374-1285.

Overnight respite at The Sheridan at Park Ridge
Your caree can spend one or more nights at the community while you attend our conference. The community is a 10-minute drive from our conference hotel. Cost is $188 per night which includes activities, meals and nursing care. An assessment, which can be completed in your home or at The Sheridan, is required. If you'd like more information or would like to schedule a tour, please call Fiona Forde Elkes at 224-374-1285.

Personal care help at the hotel
Will your caree join you and remain in your room while you attend our sessions? Gentle Home Care Services will have a personal care assistant (PCA) at the hotel to provide check-ins and personal care. You can hire a PCA in increments of 15 minutes. Want a break so you can join us for breakfast? Hire a PCA to take over personal care for you. Want to ensure your caree is resting comfortably during the day? Hire a PCA to check in on your caree throughout the day. Cost is $26 per hour or $15 for a 15-minute check-in. For questions or more information, call Susan Scatchell at 847-323-7428.

To ensure Gentle Home Care provides what your caree needs, please complete the following required forms and return to Susan by Nov. 2:

We look forward to seeing you and your caree!
