Family Caregivers are invited to attend the 2nd Annual Quad-City Caregiver Conference to be held Saturday, April 28 from 8 a.m. to Noon at the Waterfront Convention Center, in Bettendorf.

This conference is for people who care for family and friends in Iowa or Illinois. Invaluable information will be offered at this FREE half-day of exhibits from care providers and speakers from the law, medical and Alzheimer’s professions.

Caregivers will walk away with information on products, services and programs from local aging-network organizations. This will be a one-stop event giving caregivers a chance to talk with professionals, all under one roof, who can guide them through the maze of caregiving issues.

Respite is available, call by April 16. For information call (563) 324-9085 or 800–892-9085 or email Peggy at pdykes@genage.org. No registration is necessary. There will be refreshments, door prizes, complimentary massages, manicures and more!
