Loss of parent focus of support group

Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will offer an eight-week bereavement support group to help adults cope with loss following the death of a parent.

The group will meet weekly on Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. beginning July 1 and continuing through Aug. 19 at the Health and Wellness Center at I-Park, 761 Main Ave., Norwalk.

"In this support group, we will address the range of powerful feelings that are common among adults following the death of a parent including depression, fear, abandonment, remorse, isolation, loneliness and guilt," the Rev. Karen Judd, an interfaith minister and grief and bereavement counselor with Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County, said, "Regardless of age or the particular circumstances of the loss, the death of a parent can be a profoundly effecting experience and it is essential to express these feelings of grief in order to begin the process of healing."

Admission is free, but registration is required by calling 203-834-6341, ext. 255.
