Care Partner Lounge
Share |

 

This new space will be dedicated to the group of delegates who give endless time and care to their loved ones. The Care Partner Lounge will be a safe space for care partners to meet and greet each other and will be used both as a support group space and space for a formal talk each day geared to care partners.


Time: Open 9 AM to 6 PM daily from September 21-23, 2016. Two organized sessions daily, but the room is open to the rest of the time for people to pop in between sessions or just to meet up with someone.
