19th Annual Full Lives Conference for Direct Service Professionals & Care Coordinators


April 22 - April 24, 2020


About the Conference

Full Lives draws a wide range of attendees that provide services in developmental disabilities, behavioral health, traumatic brain injuries, substance related disorders, and senior services. Attendees include case managers, personal care assistance, care coordinators, community advocates, supervisors, administrators, self-advocates, caregivers, and families receiving services.

The Full Lives Conference encourages interaction, problem solving, and sharing among all participants. This atmosphere contributes to a dynamic conference that encourages ongoing networking and collaboration.

  • Outstanding Direct Service Professionals of the Year Awards

    Winners will receive $1,000 and a paid trip (where applicable) to the 2019 Full Lives Conference to accept this honor. In addition, they will receive free registration to the next Full Lives Conference in 2020.

    To be a direct service professional, a person must work at least 75% of their time in direct care activities. Direct Service Professionals provide support in a variety of settings including the individual’s home, workplace, residential center, day center, and community. Positions include, but are not limited to: PCAs, CNAs, home care providers, care coordinators, clinicians, counselors, job coaches, and early intervention associates.

  • Continuing Education Credits
    Due to the varying requirements of different jurisdictions and disciplines, the Full Lives Conference does not seek prior accreditation for CLE/CEUs. A Certificate of Attendance will be issued at the completion of your attendance at the conference that you may submit to your certifying agency or employer as necessary. We encourage attendees to check with their specific state licensing board to determine which sessions at the conference meet their requirements.
  • Continuing Education Hours for Care Coordinators
    Care Coordinators who are currently certified for 24 months or more may receive a certificate of completion of required training for recertification with Senior and Disabilities Services. Care Coordinators will receive a certificate of Continuing Education Hours from SDS Training.
    To do this:
    1. Register for, attend and participate in the three day conference
    2. Sign in with SDS training staff at the conference to receive a care coordinator training assignment.
    3. Complete the assignment after the conference and turn it in to SDS Training Staff by the identified deadline
    4. SDS is offering an optional session series with topics of interest to Care Coordinators, which is open to all conference attendees as well.
    5. All currently certified Care Coordinators, including those seeking training completion for recertification, may also receive a certificate of completion of 16 hours of Continuing Education Hours if attending and participating in all three days.
