Mourning a pet

Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer a bereavement support group to help adults cope with loss following the death of a beloved pet.  

It will meet three consecutive Thursdays, from 1:30 until 3, beginning May 12 and running through May 26, at the nursing agency’s offices in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center at iPark, 761 Main Avenue in Norwalk.

“Pets enrich our lives and provide us with companionship, emotional support and unconditional love,” said the Rev. Karen Judd, an interfaith minister and grief counselor with the agency. “Participants in this support group will be offered a safe place to express their feelings of sorrow and loss.”  

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