National Carers Conference 2017

ABI Ireland is hosting a National Carers Conference on Wednesday 15 February 2017. The event takes place in the Croke Park Conference Centre. The conference is designed exclusively for family carers and family members who are caring for a loved one with an acquired brain injury.

Conference Theme

The theme of the conference is 'Building Resilience: Valuing Myself as a Carer'. It aims to provide family carers with greater levels of knowledge and understanding of brain injury.

There will be a number of main speakers as well as workshops on a range of topics including:

  • Legal issues

  • Minding yourself and managing stress

  • Attention and memory challenges

The day will also include plenty of opportunities to network with other family members, have some fun and experience a little pampering! We will have some wonderful prizes in recognition of the contribution that carers and families make in communities across Ireland.

There is a €10 fee per person to register.
