Daughterhood San Diego Caring for Caregivers Fifth Anniversary
Daughterhood San Diego On September 16th and 17th 2020 the San Diego Daughterhood circle celebrated its fifth anniversary of caring for caregivers in San Diego with a two-night virtual event. Daughterhood members in San Diego and across the country came together to celebrate five years of support and caring for one another. The celebration spanned two evenings for two and half hours each night, featuring speakers on topics important to caregivers, caregivers sharing their own stories, and a little bit of fun, too.
Daughterhood San Diego’s monthly meetings are a blend of community support and resource sharing, and this anniversary event will be absolutely on brand! On Wednesday night, two speakers will address end-of-life legal documents and mindful self-care for caregivers. Thursday night will feature a presentation on CBD and cannabis for caregivers and their loved ones, and end with a look back at five years of Daughterhood as well as a look forward by the national group’s founder. Both evenings will include frontline caregiving stories from local San Diego Circle members, and drawings for raffle prizes. The complete agenda, with speakers, topics and times, can be found below.
In September 2015, two San Diego senior care experts joined forces to bring a cherished concept to life. Christine Lee (Casa Companion Homecare Solutions) and Karen Van Dyke (Senior Care By Design) were already serving San Diego’s seniors, their families and their caregivers when they decided they wanted to do more. They discovered Daughterhood.org, the brainchild of Anne Tumlinson, a Washington D.C.-based author, consultant, and aging expert. Anne’s experience with aging in the public, private and personal sectors inspired her to create a national resource to help families care for loved ones. With Anne’s support and blessing, Christine and Karen launched Daughterhood’s first local Circle, which has been sustaining and strengthening San Diego caregivers ever since.
We appreciate everyone who registered, attended and enjoyed the Daughterhood San Diego 5th Anniversary Event! We loved sharing the spirit of Daughterhood with all of you over two wonderful evenings, and we hope you did too! And if you couldn’t make it ‘live’, you’ll find here links to all the presentations and handouts you missed!
