More than 65million family caregivers play a major role in promoting health and wellness while working to improve the quality of life for those they care for. For most, becoming a family caregiver can be both heart warming and heart wrenching at the same time. Whether the role of becoming a caregiver happened gradually over time or abruptly, family caregivers frequently find themselves providing more care for others than for themselves.

Often family caregivers will struggle with day-to-day demands and can slowly be consumed by their role as a caregivers. While
this can be a very rewarding journey, it can also be difficult and overwhelming when traveled alone.

The purpose of the Annual Compassionate Caregiver Conference is to help family caregivers and community members identify
what resources are available in our community, as well as helping provide family caregivers with the tools and resources to support them in their role in caring for their loved ones
