Award-winning Virtual Video Caregiver Summit – Caregiver Smile Summit 2 – Announces Full Agenda

Virtual, On Demand Caregiver Summit – The second annual Caregiver Smile Summit recently announced their speaker lineup and agenda at

The Virtual, On Demand Summit, which you can access on your schedule, will feature video recorded interviews with 39 experts in 36 sessions and those videos will be available on demand starting during November, National Caregivers Month.

The Caregiver Summit has been recognized by United Health and AARP in the Open IDEO Caregiver Challenge

Included with eachvideo interview is a valuable giveaway. The cumulative value of these giveaways would total hundreds of dollars if purchased. This includes a copy of Cherished Memories, a 96-page document to help you capture your life story or that of a loved one. A $75 value, it sold out on QVC! Discounts, white papers, e-books, and more will accompany the videos.

The Summit price is just $50! Prices increase when the videos are made available to registrants in November.

The Caregiver Smile Summit is a virtual Summit that will transform your caregiving by providing practical knowledge to make you a better caregiver, take care of your own health, while preparing you for your own aging journey. In Caregiver Summit 2 – Tips, Tricks and Tactics, we offer practical tips and solutions that you can apply every day in your caregiving. This Summit is ideal for almost anyone. If you are just starting to see the signs that mom and dad need care, this is for you. If you are an experienced caregiver, this is for you too. Even if your caregiving journey is over there is something you can learn about preparing for your own aging needs. That is why boomers should consider attending the Summit. And even foresighted Gen X’ers and Millennials, who make up 25% of family caregivers, can learn something too.

Recently I purchased your Virtual Caregiver Smile Summit.  I am so impressed with the warmth and quality of your interviews and the professional and valuable content of your experts! I ended up spending my holiday weekend watching all the videos, and actually cancelled other plans because it was so good. I want to thank you for putting this together and
making it available. I am recommending it to all my colleagues.
