The Family Resource Network, a New Jersey-based organization, will re-convene many of the nation’s industry leaders and family caregivers for the 2022 National Caregivers Conference.
The theme of NCC 2022 is “Emerging Forward, Together”. COVID-19 took a significant toll on the Nation becoming the most challenging times we’ve ever faced. Unpaid family caregivers were impacted by the pandemic in four categories: environmental, technological, societal, and economic. As the Nation is on the path of recovery, The Family Resource Network puts emphasis on the necessity to address the issues in conjunction with the others. The effectiveness of the recovery relies solely on how well policymakers, leaders, and professionals work together. The National Caregivers Conference is committed to creating a space to collaborate, learn and support.
“A new world will emerge, the contours of which are for us to draw.”-Klaus Schwab.
