Support for those who have lost a loved one

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer a free, eight-week bereavement support group to help adults cope with loss following the death of a loved one.

The group will meet Tuesday evenings from 6 until 7:30, Jan. 27 through March 17.

“Many people find themselves devastated at the death of someone close to them, whether that person is a family member, a dear friend or significant other,” said the Rev. Karen Judd, a grief  counselor with the nursing agency. “This support group will help participants gain a deeper understanding of their feelings of grief and begin the process of healing.”

The group will meet at the agency’s offices in Suite 114 at the Health and Wellness Center, 761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Norwalk/Wilton town line.   

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