This conference is designed for Home Care Aides, Certified Nursing Assistants, Direct Support Professionals, Hospice Aides, and others who work in the field of direct care. These individuals provide most of the direct hands on care and services to Iowans of all ages and in many different locations.

The conference theme is “Three P’s in a Pod,” which stands for professional and personal development and peer networking opportunities. Session topics include oral care, mental illness, “hot topics in direct care”, as well as a fun program on "The Magic of Motivation" by Jim Jelinske.

The Iowa CareGivers is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, founded in 1992 and exists to ensure that Iowans receive good care and support when and where they need it. They do that by focusing on serving the needs of those who provide most of that care and service…the direct care workforce.
