Spring Family Caregiver Workshops

Are you a family caregiver, providing assistance to a loved one who needs help because of physical or mental disabilities, or who is an aging family member whose health is in decline?

This six-week series on family caregiving is designed to help caregivers in our CSUSM community handle their role responsibilities with less negative impact.

This workshop, designed by psychology faculty Dr. Judi Phillips and Dr. Sharon Hamill, will provide tips for improving your physical, mental and emotional health and enhancing your family and other social relationships while caregiving. Critical information about local community resources to help you, and your loved ones, to survive and thrive will also be emphasized.

Join us for..

  • local tools and resources
  • tips for coping with stress
  • ideas to stay resilient & build a support network

Join Dr. Sharon Hamill, faculty director for the CSU Institute for Palliative Care at CSUSM and Dr. Judi Phillips, psychology faculty member, for a FREE workshop series aimed at supporting family caregivers.
