I'm happy to announce our 2nd Annual Caregiving Conference will take place on Sunday, March 29, 2015 and begins at 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT, 11 a.m. PT). You can register for our conference to receive updates and reminders at the bottom of this post.

Each year, in our Annual Family Caregiver survey, you say that you want a caregiving conference in your community. We love the idea of hosting a conference but how to do it so we reach as many family caregivers as possible?

Our Virtual Caregiving Conference is the solution--the conference happens right in your home. In essence, we bring the conference to you.

Last year's conference was a hit so I'm excited to see the kind of home run we'll hit this year.

It’s a conference the features family caregivers that’s for family caregivers. You can watch the live conference in the comfort of your home. And, we’ll create an archive of the conference so you watch the conference as often as you want and need. Look for details next week on how you can submit a proposal to present.

Anyone caring for a family member or friend will want to attend. Attending our conference is easy--just watch our presentations in the comfort of your home on your laptop, computer or tablet.

Our conference will kick off with a wonderful presentation from Bruce and Kathy McIntry. In their presentation, “Thriving Through Adversity: 10 Lessons After 10 Years of Chronic Illness and Caregiving,” Bruce and Kathy will share 10 lessons they’ve learned since Kathy’s diagnosis of Dermatomyositis more than 10 years ago. They will share nuggets of wisdom and hope they learned from their experiences, both admirable and excruciating. Their session will leave you feeling encouraged and equipped for the journey ahead.

Other sessions include tips on how to organize paperwork, medications and the caregiving experience. Trish, who cares for her brother, will share tips on how she manages incontinence care.

In the closing session of our Virtual Caregiving Conference, Holly, who cared for her husband, Dave, will share how she and Dave created his (and hers) peaceful end.

If you offer a product or service that helps family caregivers, we'd love for you to be a sponsor.

Be sure to save the date–our conference will happen March 29, 2015 and begin at 2 p.m. ET (1 p.m. CT, 11 a.m. PT).
