For Organizations

The Stress-Busting Programs (SBP) are evidenced based and proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression and improve the quality of life for family caregivers. The Stress-Busting Program was developed by Dr. Sharon Lewis and the UT Health Science Center San Antonio. The SBP meets the Administration on Aging’s highest criteria for evidence-based programs and has a proven track record of success in helping family caregivers to manage their stress and cope better with their lives. There are four programs available: Stress-Busting Program for People with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias; Stress-Busting Program for Family Caregivers or People with chronic disease or illness; Un Camino Hacia el Bienestar – Programa Para Eliminar El Estrés De Las Personas Que Cuidan A Sus Familiares; Stress-Busting Program for Caring Professionals – Combating Compassion Fatigue and Burnout.

Participants receive everything they need including a handbook, relaxation strategies DVD, and meditation CD. The Stress-Busting classes are led by two trained group facilitators who can provide the program at churches, senior centers, senior housing, assisted living, and other locations that are convenient for family caregivers.

The WellMed Charitable Foundation is looking to work with interested organizations to provide the Stress Busting Program to their caregivers. Agencies interested in empowering caregivers by providing the Stress-Busting Programs in their local communities should contact the non-profit WellMed Charitable Foundation at or by calling 866-390-6491.
