Support for caregivers

Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County is sponsoring an eight-week support group for caregivers beginning June 16. The group will meet every Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 2:30 through Aug. 4, at the agency’s offices in Suite 114 of the Health and Wellness Center at 761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Wilton/Norwalk town line.
“Caregivers need to talk with others in similar circumstances, where they will find empathy and a special kind of understanding that isn’t available anywhere else.” said Laurie Petrasanta, a counselor with the nursing agency.
The support group is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required.
