"Someone Cares" Caregiver Conference To Be a Major Event

At you can read about the upcoming Caregiver Conference featuring New York Times Best Selling author Cec Murphy, radio host Cheryl Kuba, author, singer and actress Stacie Ruth Stoeling and best selling author Debra White-Smith. The conference is scheduled by Someone Cares for October 25-28, 2007 in Ridgecrest, North Carolina.

Over 40 concurrent workshops, multi-media presentations, daily praise and music from Nashville based Music for the Soul, and a concert by Dove award winner Scott Krippayne are among some of the activities.

For more information go to, email, or contact Carmen Leal at (808) 372-0274.

Learning opportunities for caregivers include practical topics, legal and financial issues, Medicaid and Medicare issues, respite options and caring for the caregiver.

"Someone Cares" provides Christian Caregiver Conferences and Resources. A ministry from the heart and soul, Someone Cares has a "mission to help churches and caregivers focus on the One who cares for them as they care for those they love."

Founded by Carmen Leal, who had been her late husband's caregiver for 12 years, the goals of "Someone Cares" include the following: (1) Serve the Caregiver, (2) Pray for the Caregiver, (3) Learn from the Caregiver, (4) Care for the Caregiver, and (5) Grieve with the Caregiver.

Carmen has authored nine books, is in demand as a speaker, and has written for many popular publications such as Guideposts.

At you can get information about conference schedules, caregiver devotions, and information about hosting a Someone Cares Caregiver Conference where you live.

There actually will be two conferences at that time. One is the conference for caregivers and will focus on "Learning to care for the terminally, critically or chronically ill or developmentally disabled."

The other conference is a Caregiver Symposium for Church, Staff and Lay Leaders.

The website explains that fifty-four million caregivers live in the United States, and with the aging of the population that number is expected to rise.
