What is the Caregiver Seminar?

The Caregiver Seminar is a virtual program offered through Focus on Freedom to parents and other unpaid caregivers. In this program, we provide resources for families with disabilities and information around a variety of topics related to caring for a loved one with disabilities.

Make Meaningful Impact in your Home Now

As a caregiver, your plate is full. At times, it may feel overwhelming or like you’re not prepared to best help your loved one with disabilities.

We get it. We really do.

Our seminar was developed by Marla Kopecky Penney as a way to provide much needed support to caregivers who feel like they’ve tried everything but aren’t making any progress. 

It’s designed to help parents who’ve been put on waitlist after waitlist for a variety of Children’s Long-Term Support (CLTS) Programs and for caregivers who just need a break.

The Caregiver Seminar is designed to equip caregivers with the resources and tools they need to make small changes to help their loved one make progress and thrive. It is a great tool for any caregiver, but especially those on CLTS waiting lists who need help now!
