Oh, Sheila, thank you for all that you do/did for your parents! and sharing re: laughter... how simple and such a critical medicine! I treasure all your stories, thank you! I love how you lift up such important principles such as person-centered care, self-directed care; normalizing the present moments/emotions; and focusing on LIFE. Thank you Ellen for sharing vision boards esp for financial abundance - its a big deal bc its impacts health and happiness at for all involved.

\"I wish I knew then what I know now\"... this statement by Sheila really resonated with me and is one of the reasons I have started my caregiving consultant business in London, Ontario Canada. I wish to ease the journey that other caregivers are experiencing by sharing with them what I know now after 26 years of caregiving. I'm looking so forward to seeing both Sheila and Ellen present!

Hi y'all! I just finished watching the Day 3 conference with Elizabeth at and wanted to leave my reply to that video as a nomination for joining the Conference in Chicago this November. So, I apologize if I'm on the wrong comment page, but this is where I was directed and so I'll chance it! (I am technologically challenged!) What impressed me the most about Day 3's interview with Elizabeth was what both she and Denice Brown referred to as, The Relationships, Solutions, and Possibilities in this shared Community and, as Elizabeth put it, My Tribe; we all speak the same language. Knowing I'm not alone is a huge support. Being able to brainstorm together (as with the curved toothbrushes --- where do you find those?) and knowing I will be refreshed and renewed upon my return, is what my heart desires. Thank you for this opportunity. \nTomorrow, I might be able to find the correct comment section! Ha! Thanks for listening.

Another informative introduction to two of the presenters. I loved hearing about the Prosperity Picture from Ellen and the Positive focus from Sheila and how caregiving has changed over the years, with something so physical as our own physical abilities and limitation as we age.


Denise, I'm impressed with the mix of topics and presenters you have selected from personal experiences to professionals in the field. I'm inspired by the stories like Shelias and realism she represents as a caregiver. Equally important are the professional advice and tips that someone like Helen has to offer. Well done!
