06 Jul Stress‐Busting Program
Last month’s newsletter introduced the “Stress‐Busting Program (SBP) for Family Caregivers.” SBP is an evidence based program aimed at helping family caregivers who are caring for a person with dementia or chronic illness(es).
SBP is a nine‐week program designed to help family caregivers improve their quality of life, cope with their caregiving situation, and learn to manage their stress. Caregivers who have participated in this program have reported significantly lower stress, depression, and anxiety as well as improved quality of life.
The USC Family Caregiver Support Center will be the first organization in California to be trained and certified to offer this program. We will be offering SBP in the following locations:
- Glendale at the USC Verdugo Hills Hospital from July 29 to September 23, 2:00‐4:00 pm
- Long Beach at the Grace First Presbyterian Church from August 5 to September 30, 1:30‐3:30 pm
- Rosemead at our new office location from September 15 to November 10, 10:00 am‐ 12:00 pm
- Los Angeles at the USC campus from August 4th to September 29, 5:00‐7:00 pm
If you are interested in attending or would like more information, please call us toll free at 1‐855‐872‐6060. Registration is required.
