Support for loss of a loved one

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer a free bereavement support group to help adults cope with loss following the death of a loved one.

The group will meet Tuesday afternoons from 4 until 5:30, beginning March 19 and will continue through May 7.

“Grief is a simple word and it’s completely inadequate to describe the depth of loss that people experience, and the multitude of issues involved, when a loved one dies,” said the Rev. Karen Judd, an interfaith minister and a grief and bereavement counselor with the agency. “This support group will help participants gain a deeper understanding of their feelings.”

The group will meet in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center of Norwalk Hospital at i.park, 761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Norwalk/Wilton town line.

The group is open to the public but pre-registration is required. Call 203-834-6341, ext. 255.
