About Gary Barg

Gary has dedicated the last 17 years of his life to being the caregiver of caregivers. When he began caregiving, he was overwhelmed by nursing home, insurance, and state brochures, all of which lacked proper direction. Gary realized there needed to be a single source of information, advice, and support for caregivers.

In 1995, he established Today’s Caregiver magazine as that source. In addition to the magazine, was launched on the Internet in 1995. Gary also hosts a series of conferences around the nation called Fearless Caregiver Conferences, which feature experts, celebrities, and leverage the shared knowledge base of participating family caregivers.

Gary has made meeting the needs of caregivers his life work. He has created a community for 65.7 million caregivers to learn, exchange ideas, and receive support.
