A free, weekly support group for caregivers will begin Jan. 20 at the offices of Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County. The group will meet Tuesday afternoons from 1:30 to 3 through March 10. Registration is required by calling 203-834-6341, ext. 255.
Laurie Petrasanta, a counselor with the nursing agency, will lead the group where caregivers may “talk with others in similar circumstances, where they will find empathy and a special kind of understanding that isn’t available anywhere else.”
