Support for grieving parents

Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer an eight-week bereavement support group to help parents cope with loss following the death of a child. The support group will meet weekly on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 until 4, beginning July 13 and continue through Aug. 31.

Here bereaved parents will find a safe place to talk about their child and their loss as well as their fears, anxieties and other feelings. Parents will learn from the shared experiences of others who have suffered a similar loss, a press release from the nursing agency said.  

The group will meet in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center at I-Park, 761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Norwalk/Wilton town line. The group is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required. Call 203-834-6341, ext. 316.
