VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – It’s a conference. But for many attendees, it’s also a luxury.
Caregivers like Amanda Rytych, featured in the video below, rarely get away from their homes because their service member spouse requires around-the-clock care. The USO’s second Caregivers Conference of 2013 brought more than 50 caregivers to the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront to learn new strategies on how to work through challenging situations at home. Presenters like game on Nation’s Steve Shenbaum, Stronger Families’ Noel Meador and author and motivational speaker Trevor Romain shared coping and life enrichment strategies with caregivers, who are often pulled in several different directions while trying to keep their family on track.
