Support in the loss of a spouse

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer two, eight-week bereavement support groups this spring to help individuals cope with loss following the death of a spouse.

One group will meet weekly on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 until 4, beginning April 17 and continuing through June 5.

The second group will meet weekly on Monday mornings from 11 until 12:30  beginning April 28 and continuing through June 16.

“In these support groups, we will explore the grieving process and the profound sense of personal loss that follows the death of a spouse,” said Amy Bauer, a grief and bereavement counselor with the agency.

The groups will meet at the agency offices in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center at 761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Norwalk/Wilton town line.

The groups are free and open to the public but pre-registration is required. Call 203-834-6341, ext. 255.
