Wallingford, CT, January 3, 2014……….Masonicare Home Health & Hospice cordially invites men from the community who are grieving the loss of a spouse to become part of a Widowers’ Support Group, specially designed to help them share and process their grief with other grieving men in a safe and supportive environment. The group will explore some of the gender-specific reactions men may experience as they transition through their grief journey. The sessions will be facilitated by Dennis Farrar, MSW, a hospice social worker with Masonicare.
The Support Group will meet on Thursday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Masonicare at Ashlar Village, Cheshire Road in Wallingford, on the following dates: January 23, February 6 and 20, March 6 and 20, April 3 and 17, and May 1. All eight sessions will be held in the private dining room in the Hartog Activities Center at Ashlar Village (Bridgehouse Lobby entrance).
There is no charge to participate in the group, but pre-registration is required by Thursday, January 16. Attendance is recommended for all eight sessions, if possible. For additional information or to register, please call 203-679-5395.
