I am really excited to share the first Caregiving.com Virtual Care Conference! Denise Brown lined up several presenters covering all sorts of situations caregivers face and topics of interest to caregivers. I am honored to be a part of what I hope is the first annual conference!
Richard (my husband and creator of PickYourPain.org) did what he does best: teach! He demonstrated how to safely get Robert in and out of the car, how to use and fold a transport chair as well as many other useful tips involving various medical equipment. I was the behind-the-scenes camera person for his presentation and, well, let’s just say I will be keeping my day job but Robert was a real star!
G-J Heins and I also presented our care tips when traveling with our caree and helpful hints when leaving them in respite care. Thankfully, this only involved talking with G-J and no camera work!
This was a terrific conference and I was thrilled to be a part of it. It was made for caregivers – after all, how many of us have four hours to attend a conference? Not many. The Care Conference is a virtual conference and can be watched when there is a few spare minutes here and there (or if sitting bedside by your caree in the hospital or care facility). The four hour conference is broken up into several twenty minute presentations.
Please leave your feedback in the comment section so we can convince Denise to make this an annual event. Tell us what topics you would like to see covered during future conferences or if you are interested in being a presenter. Let me know what you liked about this conference and what you found to be most helpful.
(I am hoping by the next conference my filming abilities have improved!)
