Senior caregivers based in or near Chicago, Illinois should consider taking some time for themselves and enjoy a little TLC care of Clorox®.
Caring for the elderly, especially in their own homes, can be a relentless and stressful endeavor. Those of us who take care of our senior loved ones know that there is little time left over to care for ourselves. Clorox® CareConceptsTM recognizes that fact and is planning a series of evenings in cities around the country to celebrate and honor those who care for others.
Chicago’s caregiver event takes place on Wednesday, August 20, and will provide some pampering activities, along with hors d'oeuvres, drinks, and the opportunity to meet others in the caregiving community who experience all the joys and frustrations that you do.
There will also be a screening of the documentary “A Sacred Journey” by filmmaker Ernesto Quintero and a panel discussion among experts and caregivers on the topic: When Care Comes Home, exploring the challenges and inspirational moments of in-home caregiving.
If you bring along a photo submission of you with the person for whom you are caring, along with a brief description (i.e., “Caring for my mom since 2001”), Clorox® CareConceptsTM will donate $5 on your behalf to the REST Program.
Date: Wednesday, August 20
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: The Logan Theater 2646 N Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60647
Transportation: Car: Complimentary valet parking
Nearest CTA: Blue Line at Logan Square
RSVP by Thursday, August 14 to RSVP@pdcpr.net or 708.305.5075

Caregiverlist® has long been a champion of the family and professional caregiver. A few years ago, we held our own “Caregiver Day” and can attest to its popularity. Senior caregiving can be such an isolating experience—sometimes it’s just you and your senior. We highly recommend taking advantage of any and all opportunities to take some time and connect with others who know exactly what you are experiencing as a caregiver. We think the Clorox® CareConceptsTM special night out on August 20 will be a hit in Chicago. Look for other Clorox® CareConceptsTM caregiver night off events in Los Angeles on October 1 and Washington DC on November 13.
