There is Honor in Asking for Help

There is Honor in Asking for Help® Caregiver Wellness Summit – 2018

The There is Honor in Asking for Help® campaign’s mission is to advocate and support frontline caregivers who are caring for a loved one and/or client to remain employed and productive in the workplace. Our specific focus is on frontline caregivers who are doing double duty (i.e., working in the healthcare field as a nursing assistant, home care aide, personal assistants, and volunteers and who also care for a family member).


The “There is Honor in Asking for Help”® Caregiver Wellness Summit is scheduled for Thursday November 15th and Friday November 16th. The Summit will be held at the Marriott in Downtown Omaha, Nebraska. During the two-day summit participants will be engaged in the sharing of best practices, personal experiences, and interactive activities that will be the foundation for implementing caregiver- friendly workplace wellness initiatives, in their respective workplace.

If you are a Linchpin Caregiver (a caregiver who is doing double duty i.e., working in the healthcare field as a nursing assistant, home care aide, personal assistant, or volunteer, while who also caring for a family member or friend) this summit is for you! Family caregivers, frontline caregivers, nurses, social workers, human resource managers, and volunteers are also invited to attend. We plan to engage in meaningful dialogue about how caregivers can be better supported in the workplace. This important Caregiver Wellness Summit promises to be an experience that you will not soon forget!
