Private Duty Home Care Symposium

Private Duty Home Care Symposium
Private Duty Home Care provider agency owners and administrators are invited to attend the Private Duty Symposium, planned for September 13 in Naperville.

Attendees will gain up-to-date information on labor laws and regulations that apply to Illinois home care agencies as well as several of the opportunities and challenges facing private duty agencies today. Home Health Agency managers and other individuals interested in learning more about the private duty sector will also find the symposium to be a good investment of their time and money.

The Private Duty Symposium is the result of a partnership between Home Care Association of America, Illinois HomeCare & Hospice Council and Leading Age Illinois. In its 4th year, the Private Duty Symposium brings together experts and thought leaders in the home care industry to inform, inspire and enlighten attendees. New this year are breakout sessions. The breakout sessions have evolved from the roundtable discussions of previous years and offer innovative topics to aide in care delivery.
