Who should attend the conference?

Anyone who works in home care or hospice will benefit from the Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo. This includes nurses, supervisors, owners, and operators in nearly every specialty field who want to learn more about industry trends and current issues. Networking with peers at all levels is also a great way to learn and share information.

Finally, the Expo provides the industry’s largest marketplace for buyers and sellers, something you don’t want to miss if you’re looking for ways to deliver patient-centered care more safely and efficiently.

What does it cost to attend?

The cost to attend the conference is only $1,400. However, if you’re a member of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, you pay just $950. The conference rate includes education sessions, general sessions and keynotes, the Expo, most meals and receptions. Pre-conferences are an additional cost.

Do you offer a group discount?

Yes. We offer group discounts for both members and non-members. If you’re a NAHC member, bring 8 people and 9th person is free. For non-members, bring 12 people and the 13th is free.

How can I reserve a guest room?

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice has negotiated special rates with Long Beach hotels. Those rooms are available through the registration process.

What’s the best airport to fly into?

There are three major airports that serve Long Beach: Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and John Wayne Airport in Orange County (SNA) are less than 30 minutes from downtown Long Beach, and Long Beach Airport (LGB) is just 7 minutes from downtown.

Are CEs available?

Yes, most classes are eligible for continuing education credits in nursing, accounting, social work, physical therapy, and administration. Eligible CEs will be listed with course descriptions online when they become available. You can download certificates for any classes you attend and are scanned in for.

Will recordings of the education sessions be available?

The audio portion of most sessions will be recorded and synched with the slide presentations, and then converted into online learning modules available through Home Care University. Access to recordings is free for one year for paid attendees but is also for sale to the general public.

What meals and receptions does registration include?

If you are registered for the full conference you can participate in the opening reception in the Expo on Sunday, as well as breakfast and lunch on Monday and Tuesday, and the Closing Party on Tuesday evening. If you are registered with a one-day pass, you are eligible for the meals offered for the day of your pass.
