As one of the official sponsors, Home Instead Senior Care is pleased to announce the 17th Annual Caregiver Survival Skills Conference: The Power to Persevere, will be held Friday, June 12th, from 8:30 am until 2:30 PM at the Conference Center at Mercy in Oklahoma City. The conference is designed to provide Caregivers a break from caregiving and to help them learn techniques to handle some of the every day challenges and struggles of caregiving. Oklahoma is estimated to have over 600,000 Caregivers according to the AARP. These Caregivers, who often are family members or friends, take responsibility for a patient’s day to day care and comfort often involving helping the patient with basic physical and medical care along with communicating with the patient’s health care provider. Many times this work is performed 24 hrs a day and 7 days a week without a break so Caregivers can really be stretched thin. The conference offers hope & encouragement, perspective and information to help Caregivers also take care of themselves and the issues they are dealing with.

Conference speakers will touch on subjects like the Power of Perspective, the Power of the Law, the Power of the Mind with the keynote speaker, Bruce McIntyre, speaking on the Power to Persevere. Mr. McIntyre is currently the Associate Director of the Parkinson Foundation of Oklahoma and the author of “Resilient Life” and “Graceful Transitions.”

In addition to all the speakers, the conference will provide lunch as well as a resource fair with representatives from over 25 local organizations and services in the community exhibiting. A suggested donation of $10 is requested to attend. For more information or to register, please call (405) 752-3803. Registration ends June 5, 2015. The conference is sponsored by Mercy Hospital, Home Instead Senior Care, Concordia Life Care Community, Sunbeam Family Services and Areawide Aging Agency.
