“I’m a Fearless Caregiver: Don’t Mess With Me” remains our mission statement about how family caregivers must take control of their caregiving responsibilities, says Gary Barg, CEO and Editor-In-Chief of Caregiver Media Group.
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 for the daylong Fearless Caregiver Conference sponsored by Today’s Caregiver magazine and the Alliance for Aging.
A shortened list of sponsors includes Humana MarketPOINT, CarePlanners.com, Vitas, Dignity, Caption Call and many others who will be there to help educate and inform caregivers on how to be more fearless in their caregiving efforts. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
“Today’s Caregiver Magazine, http://www.caregiver.com and the Fearless Caregiver Conferences were conceived out of the void of available support for family caregivers. When our family was faced with the challenges of caring for our dad and two grandparents, dealing with a wide variety of healthcare challenges, my mother and I decided to help others going through the caregiving process by starting a magazine,” Barg said. “We had no idea that the magazine would grow into such a success as the first national publication for family and professional caregivers.”
Today’s Caregiver magazine, launched 17 years ago here in Miami, has grown into a nationally distributed publication, an online community, http://www.caregiver.com , and Fearless Caregiver Conferences, held across the nation, that have educated over 50,000 families and professional caregivers across the country.
