2010: Handle with Care: Powerful, Compassionate Caregiving


The 2010 Handle with Care conference attracted more than 750 nurses, social workers, case managers, nursing home administrators and others who care for the chronically and terminally ill and the elderly. Seven speakers from a wide array of fields included AARP Caring Ambassador and nationally renowned author Gail Sheehy, best known for her book, “Passages”. This conference, sponsored by more than 50 organizations of the Caring Coalition, demonstrated that caregiver skills and well-being directly impact the outcome of patient care.
