Fall Newsletter
Greetings Caregivers,

November is recognized as National Family Caregivers Month and our team at the UCSF Neuro-Oncology Gordon Murray Caregiver Program would like to take this time to recognize and honor YOU and all that you do to care for your loved ones.

We encourage you to explore and take advantage of educational resources and support options available to you as caregivers. As always, please feel free to reach out to our program team if you have any questions or feel you could benefit from additional resources. We are here if you need us!

Warm Wishes,
The UCSF Neuro-Oncology Gordon Murray Caregiver Program team
Session 1: Tuesday, November 2 (4:00-5:30pm PST)
Session 2: Tuesday, November 9 (4:00-5:30pm PST)
Session 3: Tuesday, November 16 (4:00-5:30pm PST)

We invite you to join us for a 3-part interactive webinar series on Resilience & Sustainable Caregiving, hosted by UCSF interfaith chaplain Judy Long. As a chaplain and educator, Judy offers balanced resilience training in evidence-based practices that can help to make caregiving sustainable and reduce burnout. Sessions are offered remotely via Zoom and will include a short break.

Event in the Works: Parenting Workshop Series

Our Supportive Care Services team is currently working on creating a "Parenting Workshop Series" to provide education and emotional support for brain cancer patients and their partners who are parents. 
We are interested in gathering your feedback to determine when this event would best fit in your schedules. If you think you might be interested, please consider taking our brief survey at the link below which will also get you on our Early Bird Registrant list.

Thank you in advance & we will be in touch with more details once we get closer to launching the series!
Support Options
Neuro-Oncology Caregiver Support Group
Monthly on the 2nd Wednesday (6:30-8:00pm) via Zoom

Our caregiver-only support group is an emotional support group facilitated by our neuro-oncology social worker and allows caregivers to focus on their own experience. Open to caregivers of UCSF brain tumor patients.
Also available is our patient & caregiver support group, open to all brain tumor patients and family members.
On your own schedule!

Our peer support program matches a current caregiver of a brain tumor patient with a former caregiver volunteer who can provide emotional and practical support as needed.
Caregivers are matched as best as possible on age, diagnosis, family situation and more.
