“Stress-Busting for Family Caregivers,” a unique 9-week program designed to help family caregivers manage their stress and cope better with their lives, will be offered by Morris County’s Office on Aging, Disability, and Community Programming starting on Sept. 19.

During these weekly, 90-minute sessions, small groups of caregivers will learn new skills, stress management techniques, and information about illnesses and diseases that have impacted their loved ones. These sessions also will provide caregivers with an opportunity to share their experiences and learn from each other.
