Local hospice to offer grief support group

Wilton's Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer a free, eight-week bereavement support group for men.

The group will meet Monday mornings from 10 until 11:30, beginning Sept. 24 and will continue through Nov. 12.

"The loss of a loved one is a profound experience and it is not the same for men as for women," said the Rev. Karen Judd, an interfaith minister and bereavement counselor. "Grief can be compounded in men because they are sometimes reluctant to directly address their sadness about loss."

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

Pre-registration is required; call 203-834-6341, ext. 255.
