About this Event

For the Caregiver

Retreat, Relax, Refresh, Recharge!

Who is this for?

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's, Stroke, Cancer, Physically Disabled, Developmental Disability, Seizures, Elderly, Mental Illness, Parkinson's or any other chronic disease.

Why a special day for Caregivers?

We must say, we do have an ulterior motive. If we help you, you will be able to help others better and you won't get sick.

You are touching a loved one, shifting, turning and prompting all the time. When is the last time you were hugged, embraced or pampered? Come feel the love at the 12th Annual Inner Safari Caregiver Conference.

What is an INNER SAFARI?

The INNER SAFARI Caregiver Conference is an inward journey to self discovery and some time to show yourself some love, recognize and embrace your greatest power – The Gift of Caring!

What is the Soul of a Caregiver?

What is soul and how is the caregiver empowered and sustained? Discovering Soul implies going deeper into the inner caverns of our being and listening to the inner beats of our heart where insight and wisdom abide. -Edward M. Smink Ph.D
