Stress-Busting Program for Family Caregivers

The Stress-Busting for Family Caregivers is a 9-week program that consists of weekly, 90-minute sessions with a small group of caregivers. During these sessions caregivers will learn many new skills, including information about the disease process, stress management techniques, and a variety of other content. These sessions also provide caregivers with an opportunity to share their experiences and learn from each other.  It is designed to improve the quality of life for family caregivers who provide care for persons with Alzheimer's disease, other related dementias, and chronic illnesses. This program helps caregivers manage their stress and cope better with their lives. Currently, there are 9 agencies in NJ who are trained to deliver these programs, 3 of whom are able to serve statewide on a request-basis. To find an agency in your area, see the Stress Busters Contact List.
