SAGE Eldercare is offering a free, 8 week bereavement support group beginning September 19, for people age 60 and older who have lost a spouse in the last year. The group meets on Sept 19, 26, Oct 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 and Nov 7, 2:00 – 3:00 pm. Attendees must register. Please call 908-598-5509 or email email@example.com.
The support group will be led by Kathy Larkin, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and SAGE’s InfoCare Manager. “Adjusting to the loss of a spouse is a life-changing event and an ongoing process. During the first year, the world can feel like a different place to the one who is grieving. At this time, it can be helpful to be with others who are on a similar road to share concerns, coping strategies, and fellowship as you move forward,” said Larkin.
