Boca 13 Article  

On July 25, 2013, Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com hosted the 2013 Boca Raton Fearless Caregiver Conference. This was the 126th 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.

The expert Question and Answer panel at the Boca Raton Fearless Caregiver Conference consisted of Dr. Jon Segal, CEO, DiscountMedicalSupplies.com; Veronica A. Castro, LCSW, C-ASWCM, Veterans Administration Caregiver Support Coordinator; Kim Clawson, Elder Helpline Director, Area Agency on Aging, Palm Beach/Treasure Coast; Jeannie Lavoie, RN, Humana; and Lola Rain,
Senior Living Manager, GE-Intel Care Innovations.

More than 300 caregivers in attendance were able to ask direct questions of these caregiving thought leaders, and spend the day learning about the latest techniques, products, services and innovations they need in their role as family caregivers.

“I was extremely proud to share the day with such an outstanding panel of experts,” 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 for an incredible afternoon session about being fearless caregiving partners in care were Connie Alexander, her daughter and family caregiver, Heather Muncy, and Moderator Susan Schnell, ACNP. It was a session that really captivated everyone in attendance,” said Barg.
