Message From The Chair

-Ellen Edgerly


I am pleased to tell all of you that the 7th Annual Statewide Caregivers Conference that was held on November 6, 2013 at the Courtyard Marriott in Concord, New Hampshire was the most successful conference to date!

The conference provided caregivers from all caregiving populations with practical skills to be used in their daily caregiving responsibilities along with providing current information on supportive services and resources. More importantly caregivers had an opportunity to network and share with fellow caregivers.

The conference provided great workshops and presenters, along with the opportunity to network with fellow caregivers.  Keynote presenter Susan Poulin provide a humorous, inspirational and motivational start to the day.

I would like to say a special thank you to our massage and reiki therapists who volunteered their time to pamper our caregivers throughout the day. I would also like to say a special thanks to DHMC for providing free flu shots to our caregivers.

As always our mistress of ceremonies Becky Rule kept all of us on course and engaged the caregivers throughout the day with her Yankee humor.

Some of the conference evaluation feedback received from our caregivers included:

-Great location & Speakers.


-Very good- will be back next year.

-Excellent Keynote Speaker – great selection

-Better than expected

-This was one of the best and best run seminars I ever attended!

-Great Workshops.  Felt very cared for.

-Great Conference – My first time!

-I am very impressed!  Thank you!

I am excited to tell you that the 2014 8th Annual Statewide Caregivers Conference will be held on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 at the Courtyard Marriott Grappone Conference Center located in Concord, New Hampshire.  A block of rooms have been reserved at a reduced rate for caregivers who would like to have an overnight respite.  Please contact the hotel directly and advise them that you will be attending the caregivers conference.

The Coalition of Caring is in the planning process of the 2014 conference and will continue to update this website as information becomes available.

Take care-

Ellen M. Edgerly
