Orlando 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

West Palm Beach 2014 Fearless Caregiver Conference

On April 10th, 2014, Today’s Caregiver magazine and Caregiver.com hosted a packed house of family and professional caregivers for the annual West Palm Beach Fearless Caregiver Conference. This was the 134th 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.

During the morning session, we were proud to present a Community Fearless Caregiver award to James Sugarman, Executive Director of the West Palm Beach Library Foundation.

Our distinguished Expert Question and Answer Panel included Veronica Castro,
Caregiver Support Coordinator, VA Caregiver Support Program; Kim Clawson, Helpline Director, Your Aging Resource Center, Area Agency on Aging of Palm Beach/Treasure Coast; Brenda Horvath, RN, Nurse Liaison, Humana, and Paula Roberts, External Affairs Coordinator, Disability Rights Florida.

There was a tremendous amount of interaction between panel and audience as the caregivers in attendance asked (and answered) important questions including the importance of partnering with your local Area Agency on Aging organization, Medicaid and Medicare options in Florida, family interaction challenges, and support for caregivers whose loved ones are living with incontinence. Also joining us to discuss hearing health and family caregivers was Elizabeth Janovsky from CaptionCall.

During the luncheon session, TJ Dildine, Pharm D, Delray Shores Pharmacy, expertly answered a slew of extremely interesting questions from the caregivers in attendance.  The video above shows a portion of the interaction. 

“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.
