Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer an eight-week bereavement support group this winter to help adults cope with loss following the death of a parent. The group will meet weekly in Wilton on Thursday evenings from 6 until 7:30 beginning Jan. 21 and continuing through March 10.
“In this support group we will address the range of powerful emotions that are common among adults following the death of a parent including depression, fear, abandonment, remorse, isolation, loneliness and guilt,” said the Rev. Karen Judd, LCSW, an interfaith minister, and grief and bereavement counselor with Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County. “Regardless of age or the particular circumstances of the loss, the death of a parent can be a profoundly affecting experience and it is essential to attend to these feelings of grief in order to begin the process of healing.”
