If you are a care partner, waste no time signing up for the 2018 Age Without Borders Global Caregiving Virtual Summit, January 20-26! While you can get free access to the presentations for up to 48 hours after they’re available, shoot the wad & pay the piddly pre-summit price of $97 ($147 as of 1/20) for lifetime access.
Wait a second… I take that back – forget “If you are a care partner…” In my opinion, anyone with a pulse should plunk down the lifetime access fee, because even if you’re never in the position of being a care partner, the day may yet dawn when you need one – the more you know, the better equipped you will be to effectively navigate options, choices.
Last year’s Age Without Borders Virtual Summit was priceless, especially for someone new to considering the challenges opportunities gifts of care giving. This year’s summit – which has BIG shoes to fill – looks on track to match it, toe to toe.
So many people stumble into being a care partner, whether for a younger or an older loved one, without any preparation. I was blessed to grow up in a community where it was the norm to be close to, help out older people -and- youngers with situations that left them dependent on others. That is not the case today, not even in my little hometown. People find themselves thrown into high demand, high stress care-providing situations without any core training, support networks or understanding the importance of their own self-care.
Consider the Caregiving Global Summit both Care Partnering 101 ~and~ a post-grad course in eldercare. Start out at the one end of the spectrum & over several weeks – or months or years since the pre-summit $97 gives you lifetime access – end up at the other.
In the interest of full disclosure, I have nothing to disclose other than being an avid fan of last year’s online summit, which I can revisit whenever I want, thanks to my lifetime access. I am happy to shout from the roof tops, as someone who’s attended almost a dozen conferences & workshops over the past 3+ years, that $97 for full-access, anytime access to this package has my vote for Bargain of the Year! And that I expect to get as much out of this online summit as I did last summer’s International Association of Gerontology & Geriatrics 21st quadrennial World Congress without the costs of flying out to the West Coast & staying in San Francisco for six days.
As a proud Boomer, am all too aware that NO ONE can benefit more from this summit than my generation, forged in the fires of the ’60s, now dealing with elderly loved ones needing care while approaching or already needing care themselves, wondering how someone who needs care also provides it.
It’s my fervent prayer that people from every generation, including The Greatest, take the opportunity to latch onto all this bargain offers, but that I hope above all that my fellow Boomers give themselves the gift of its priceless knowledge, insights & deep awareness so they can handle anything that comes with the high energy & fierce activism that’s been our generation’s proud hallmark!
