Respite at NCC17!!

We have a respite program for your caree at our Second Annual National Caregiving Conference!

While you attend sessions at our conference, your caree will enjoy socialization and activities in our respite room. The conference will take place on Friday, November 10, and Saturday, November 11, at the Chicago Marriott O'Hare, 8535 W. Higgins in Chicago.

We can accommodate 10 carees on Friday and 30 carees on Saturday. Our respite program agenda will begin the day with bingo followed by a program of workshops provided by art, music and dance therapists as well as a yoga instructor. Check out our respite program agenda.

We will only provide activities and socialization; any care, such as dispensing meds and toileting, must be provided by you. You are welcome to check in on your caree throughout the day as often as you’d like. In addition, you and your caree can enjoy lunch together either in the respite room or in the Grand Ballroom. You must remain at the conference as an attendee or volunteer for the entire time your caree is enrolled in our respite program.

Our two-day conference agenda features workshops and panel discussions led by current and former family caregivers. At this conference and just like in our situations, we're the experts. Conference highlights include:

  • Two special summits -- "Caregiving and the Workplace" and "Caregiving and our Houses of Worship" -- on November 10.

  • Four-hour training for anyone interested in becoming a respite volunteer on November 10.

  • A two-hour workshop from Teepa Snow, a nationally-recognized dementia care expert, on November 11.

Registration costs to attend our conference when you are care for a family member are as follow:

  • Family caregivers: $35 for Friday or Saturday or $60 for both days. Price includes continental breakfast and lunch on each day.

  • Carees: $35 for Friday or Saturday or $60 for both days. Price includes continental breakfast and lunch on each day.

Please review our respite program agenda to ensure your caree will enjoy our workshops. And, please use your best judgment as to whether our respite program will be appropriate for your caree.

Register for our conference and your caree for our conference respite program.
