May 3, 2012 - PRLog -- Today’s Caregiver magazine and http://www.Caregiver.com, the nation’s foremost print magazine and Web community educating, training and supporting family and professional caregivers since 1995, will present the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award to actor, director, author and producer, Henry Winkler during the May 24th Western Connecticut Fearless Caregiver Conference in Southbury Connecticut.This prestigious award has only been presented to a select few caregiver advocates in the organization’s 17 year history who represent a special brand of kindness and advocacy and whose hard work truly makes a difference in the lives of those in need,” said Gary Barg, founder and editor-in-chief of the first national magazine for caregivers, Today’s Caregiver magazine, http://www.caregiver.com, and the Fearless Caregiver Conferences. Prior recipients of the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award include Debbie Reynolds, Clay Aiken, Della Reese, Robert Urich, Leeza Gibbons, Clay Walker, Patricia Richardson and Linda Dano.  

The Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging is sponsoring a limited number of free tickets for family Caregivers online at http://www.FearlessCaregiver.com or by calling 877-829-2734.

Legendary "Happy Days" star Henry Winkler will serve as the keynote speaker at the event. The event will be held from 8:30 – 2:30 on May 24th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Southbury, Connecticut.   Family caregivers interested in speaking with and receiving caregiving advice from aging and disability experts, caregiver advocates, Social Security specialists, elder law professionals, homecare and facility coordinators and support organizations can register http://www.FearlessCaregiver.com for the daylong seminar and lunch.  

Mr. Winkler is the ambassador for the "Open Arms: Raising Awareness of Upper Limb Spasticity" educational campaign which aims to reach those who are impacted by upper limb spasticity and don't know where to turn for help. Mr. Winkler is personally familiar with the impact that upper limb spasticity can have on a person.  His late mother struggled with the condition, without treatment, for 10 years following a stroke before she passed away.  

We are proud to once again partner with the Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging to present the Western Connecticut Fearless Caregiver Conference. And, of course, we are especially excited about Mr. Winkler’s participation in the event. He will be our cover interview in the May/June edition of Today’s Caregiver magazine http://www.caregiver.com and we are looking forward to his sharing his insights with the caregivers in attendance at the event,” states Barg.  “We feel that it is especially fitting for Mr. Winkler to receive the Robert M. Barg Memorial Achievement Award since it is named after the kindest man that we have ever met, our dad. It's rarely given and only presented to those who share that special brand of kindness and who work hard to truly make a difference in the lives of those in need.
