Miami 2013 Fearless Caregiver Conference

Miami 2013 Fearless Caregiver Conference

On December 5, 2013, Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com hosted the ninth annual Miami Fearless Caregiver conference. This was the 132nd conference held around the nation by the publication since 1998. More than 50,000 family and professional caregivers in 27 states have learned how to be Fearless Caregiver advocates for their loved ones, clients and themselves.

Max Rothman, the President and CEO of our event partner, The Alliance for Aging, Inc., started the event off with important insights for the caregivers in attendance. Max was also interviewed in the most recent issue of Today’s Caregiver magazine.

The expert Question and Answer panel at the Miami Fearless Caregiver Conference consisted of Dr. Jon Segal, CEO, DiscountMedicalSupplies.com; Gloria Orlandi-Kass, Program Services Coordinator, Alzheimer’s Association of Southeast Florida, Maria Rodriguez, Caregiver Coordinator for the Alliance for Aging, and Leslie Soto, Humana Team Leader.

The caregivers in attendance asked (and answered) tremendously important questions ranging from respite care to support for caregivers whose loved ones are living with incontinence, and included a discussion about the importance of ombudsmen for loved ones living in long-term care facilities.

“I was extremely proud to share the day with such an outstanding panel of experts, family caregivers, exhibitors and partners,” said Gary Barg, the conference host as well as Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com and author of the books, The Fearless Caregiver and Caregiving Ties That Bind. “Also, joining us to discuss hearing health and family caregivers was Elizabeth Janovsky from CaptionCall and Anne Warren of ScienceCare. Anne discussed end-of-life concepts including whole body donations.”
