Stress-Busting for Family Caregivers is a grant-supported initiative the Division of Aging Services (DoAS) and select partner agencies will be introducing to the state in late 2016 in cooperation with Rowan University’s New Jersey Institute for Successful Aging.
It is a nine-week program that consists of weekly, 90-minute sessions with a small group of caregivers. Caregivers learn many new skills including information about the disease process, stress management techniques, and a variety of other content. It is designed to improve the quality of life of family caregivers who provide care for persons with chronic diseases and to help caregivers manage their stress and cope better with their lives.
