Celebrating Success: Recap of the Fifth Annual Caregiver Empowerment and Wellness Conference


The Fifth Annual Caregiver Empowerment and Wellness Conference, hosted by the Region 9 Area Agency on Aging, recently took place at Mio Baptist Church, marking yet another triumph in the organization's commitment to supporting caregivers in our community. This year's conference witnessed a remarkable turnout, with 81 participants and 17 vendors coming together to engage in insightful discussions and presentations.

The conference covered an array of pertinent topics essential to caregiving, including community resources, Understanding Dementia and Brain Health, Technology Tools for Caregiving, and Building Self-Resiliency. These sessions provided attendees with valuable knowledge and strategies to enhance their caregiving journey.

The success of the conference can be attributed to the collaborative efforts of our sponsors, vendors, and presenters, whose support and expertise were instrumental in making this event possible. Their contributions ensured that attendees had access to vital resources and information, empowering them to navigate the complexities of caregiving with confidence.

As we reflect on this year's conference, we extend our gratitude to everyone involved for their dedication and commitment to the well-being of caregivers in our community. Together, we are making a meaningful difference in the lives of those who selflessly devote themselves to caring for others.
