Caregiver Education & Support Program

The UC Davis Caregiver Support Group provides an opportunity for staff and their family members to meet once a month for mutual emotional support, receive resources and exchange coping skills with one another in matters relating to caregiving.

WorkLife and Wellness and the Women's Resource and Research Center hosts a facilitated monthly support group for staff, retirees and students who are caring for an adult who is sick, disabled or fragile with age. The group is facilitated by clinical psychologist Dr. Louise Bettner, PhD, on the second Friday of each month from 12:00-1:00 in the WRRC Righteous Babes Lounge, North Hall, Davis campus. No reservation necessary.  

Upcoming groups:
