Are you in your 40’s – 60’s and responsible for your parents’ wellbeing and future?
THEN YOU ARE A FAMILY CAREGIVER!
We are proud & blessed to present the first annual Canadian Family Caregiver Symposium in Nanaimo B.C., on beautiful Vancouver Island. The symposium takes place on October 19, 2019, from 9 – 5.30 pm.
Attend the symposium if you:
- Are overwhelmed with caregiving
- Desperately want help but don’t know where to turn to
- Face tough decisions and wonder how to carry on
- Mourn the relationship that you once had
- Feel you lost control over your own life
- Have no plan for your worries.
When we care for a family member, we struggle to share honestly about our experiences. Our symposium is designed to help you, support you, empower and inspire you!
You will discover that you are not alone and have the opportunity to connect and share with other caregivers in your community. You will go home with tools, strategies and information that will make your caregiving journey more effective and fulfilling.
All those things that you didn’t know exist…
We feature family caregivers and former family caregivers as presenters and panellists.
What you’ll learn:
- How to cope during your caregiving years
- Resources: Why, When, What, How
- Ways to ease your emotional rollercoaster
- Solutions and ideas to make it better
- Begin to build a roadmap to more peace of mind and less stressful days.
- To live in the moment.
This is NOT your regular tradeshow!
