Providing Free Safe Space For Caregivers
In 2021, celebrities Sean Hayes, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Leeza Gibbons, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and Ashley Paisley joined Lauren Miller Rogen and Seth Rogen for HFC’s CareCon: A Virtual Event For Both English and Spanish-Speaking Caregivers
Presented by Kensington Senior Living, CareCon is a free, virtual event designed specifically for Alzheimer’s and dementia family caregivers worldwide. HFC CareCon is designed to empower caregivers with support, knowledge, and community through an interactive two-hour event hosted on Zoom. CareCon’s mission is to celebrate caregivers and help support them in their journey, especially during the increasingly isolated times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease when she was only 55 years old, I understand the emotional toll of caring for a loved one and can only imagine how the further isolating conditions of COVID-19 have impacted caregivers,” said HFC Co-Founder, Lauren Miller Rogen. “We decided to create CareCon to offer a safe space for caregivers, providing both community support and the education to help along their journey.”
Allowing for connection with other caregivers and providing an open forum for questions and caregiving knowledge, registrants customize their experience by selecting between two Care Path’s: Connecting to Community and Caring For You.
“Kensington Senior Living is honored to sponsor HFC CareCon and passionately supports HFC’s mission to raise awareness globally for brain health and offer support to Alzheimer’s caregiver families. We believe this event provides caregivers with new tools and best practices to help ease their caregiver journey,” said Tiffany Tomasso, co-founder, Kensington Senior Living.
“It is humbling to think about the courage and strength that millions of Americans - who care for their family members, friends and others living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia - demonstrate every day,” said Alisha Alaimo, President, Biogen US. “We are proud to support HFC’s CareCon to help bring together, empower and celebrate the Alzheimer’s caregiving community.”
