Visiting nurse association offers grief support group

Wilton’s Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County ( will offer bereavement support groups this summer to help adults cope with loss following the death of a loved one and following the death of a parent.

The group focusing on loss of a loved one will meet Monday evenings from 6 until 7:30, July 8 through Aug. 26.

Those seeking support following the death of a parent will meet Thursday evenings from 6 until 7:30, July 11 through Aug. 29.

“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, an interfaith minister and a grief and bereavement counselor with the agency.

Both workshops will help participants gain a deeper understanding of their feelings and begin the healing process.

The support groups will meet at the  761 Main Avenue (Route 7) on the Norwalk/Wilton town line.
