Orlando 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

 
Boca Raton 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

On July 24, 2014, Today’s Caregiver magazine and Caregiver.com hosted the 2014 Boca Raton Fearless Caregiver Conference. This was the 136th conference held around the nation by the publication since 1998. More than 50,000 family and professional caregivers in 28 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 and Brenda Horvath, RN, Humana.

The hundreds of 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 'Ask the Pharmacist' session was Dr. TJ Dildine, Delray Shores Pharmacy, and for our hearing health special session, Elizabeth Janovsky, Educational Director of CaptionCall. Dr. Dildine and Elizabeth both graciously answered all the questions our audience of family and professional caregivers had for them,” said Barg.

The event ended with a new section called Fearless Caregiver Practicum. This is where caregivers were given one of five challenging family caregiver scenarios presented by Caregiver.com visitors. They formed care teams and developed some tremendous answers to the questions. One of the 2014 Today's Caregiver Friendly Award winners, Leslie Curtis of Regents Park of Boca Raton, accepted their award during lunch.
