NAHC Announces Jim Comer to Speak at 2016 Annual Meeting

Val J. Halamandaris, president of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), announced today that Jim Comer has been selected as one of the speakers at the 2016 NAHC Annual Meeting to be held October 23-26 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Comer is a renowned public speaker who has dazzled audiences for 25 years with his blend of humor, practical guidance, and wide-ranging real-life experience. He has worked as an actor in New York and authored best-selling books. He has been a consultant on leadership and management for many Fortune 500 companies. He has also coached CEOs in the art of public speaking and at one point even wrote jokes for comedians like Joan Rivers and Bob Hope.

But it was hard to joke about the turn his life took in 1996. He was living the good life in California when his father had a massive stroke and his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. So Jim quit his corporate job and returned home to Texas in order to care for them. The 14 years he spent as a caregiver inspired him to write When Roles Reverse: A Guide to Parenting Your Parents. This moving account of his transformation from self-absorbed writer to active caregiver was nominated as the best non-fiction book for 2007.
