Just a reminder that the Quad City Family Caregiver Conference will be right around the corner! So please mark your calendar for Saturday, March 23rd, 2019.

The goal of the Quad City Family Caregiver Conference is to empower individuals and families in their role(s) as caregivers, by providing a venue to make the search for resources and information easier. Keynote speakers are chosen to enlighten, educate and reinforce caregiver self-help, enabling individuals and families to become more comfortable and stable in their role as a caregiver. The conference typically brings together 50-60 exhibitors (organizations/service providers/businesses) who display information about their services and provide resources & information. The event is FREE for caregivers! This year's conference will be held at St. Ambrose University's-Rogalski Center, from 8:00 a.m. - Noon. The conference is held on a Saturday morning to accommodate working caregivers.

According to the National Association for Caregiving (NAC), 8 out of 10 caregivers have requested more resources, information and support, and on average spend about 24 hours per week on caregiving. Many are unprepared for the financial, emotional, and physical toll it can have on them, and services that are available. This year will mark the 9th annual event hosted by Milestones Area Agency on Aging, St. Ambrose University, Unity Point Health-Trinity, Alzheimer's Association, and Alternatives to fill that gap.
